We have a few DEC LanBridges (which I am trying to eliminate!) on our
network, including the AUI-Fiber bridge.  They work pretty well, as
bridges go, and can be used on any ethernet network, regardless of OS.

I am not sure how you would use it with NetBSD/Vax, though.  Do you mean
use it to bridge a cluster of Vaxes running NetBSD?  Or do you mean
running NetBSD/Vax *on* the bridge?  If the former, it should be no
problem; if the latter, I doubt it, and I am not sure why you would want
to do it.
