We're about to see how the NetBSD/vax SCSI-DMA code works...
It seems to be OK with SCSI-2 devices.  I'm about to acid-test this.
Our secondary webserver needs upgrading, namely the Pentium inside
still has that old FDIV bug, and the O/S is way out)
Anyway, we've got 500 meg of websites on it, and we can't have the server down.
So, what other machine around the office has 500meg we can commandeer...  Hmm...
My MicroVAX has a gig free...  Apache is on there...  Hmm...
You can see where this is headed.
The VAX is the only machine with the space available, and NT is still acting
funny (And, I'd rather use a VAX and unproven code than NT and known-bad code!)
so I get gto give my poor MicroVAX the acid test - Can it play webserver for a

We shall see.
