I've been out of the VAXen BSD for a while, but recently the interest was
rekindled due to the arrival of a nifty little VS3100m76 + 19" color
Sadly, I came to realize that there is no X support for this beast yet.
Although I did notice the note that the graphical console IS supported now.
I have two questions:
1> How do I switch it to it's graphical console?
It looks kind of funny having to sit on a little 14" monitor with a telnet
besides this behemoth.
2> What bootstraps should I use to make it's SCSI disks bootable?
Can I use the xxboot straps, or do I need others? The disklabel program
suggests sdboot as an appropriate choice, but it's not in the installation
I'm using NetBSD 1.3.2 (naturally)
