The VS2000 graphics apparently work with the latest kernels (I'm using 1.3F 
#456).  Unfortunately the kernel panicked as soon as I pressed a couple of 
keys on the attached LK201.

Transcript of session follows:

    NetBSD/vax (vax1) (console)

    NetBSD/vax (vax1) (console)

    Login: panic: trap: access fault without process
    syncign disks... stopped at 0x8001512d: halt

at which point it dropped into the debugger.

It seems to get upset when I press "o"  (other keys were pressed but were
not interpreted correctly - they appeared to be interpreted as carriage
returns).  Interesting note: after this panic, I pressed the reset button
to return to the ">>>" prompt.  At this point the keyboard was hosed up - keys
were not being read correctly.  I tried the same thing with an LK401 and got
the same results.
