Of course it worked :-) Here is actually one of the big problems: NetBSD/vax
works on _my_ machines with _my_ devices. The bug in 1.2R causing it to be
unable to mount root device didn't show up on my machine. Installing works on 
my MVII and MVIII systems, and it's very hard for me to find out why it doesn't
work for other people. Those things must actually be found out by people
having and using the failing hardware, but I will try to help as much as I
can (if my spare time permits :-)
