My VAXstation 3100 is up and running!!

After installing the new version von S.u.S.E Linux (2.30.?) for the
bootserver I'm able to netboot my VAXstation 3100! It look's like the
version of bootparamd shiped with this version is very stable. At least I
had no problems with it (no kicking many times until it works!) I'll try to
figure out the difference between this one and the one from the netkit-0.09
or netkit-0.10.

Now I'll try to bring the system on to the internal disks. 

So after a long time, many bottles of beer, frustrating reboots..... ;-) I
managed it.
