All the problems with netbooting that I was having with my uVAX-II
were attributable to bad RAM on my 2MB board. I recently acquired 
another uVAX-II, along with which came uVAX-II diagnostic disks, which
led me to find that I had bad RAM. I pulled the 4MB board from my newly
acquired uVAX-II and put it into my original uVAX-II, and netbooting
magically started working. :)
So now I'm downloading the december snapshot over a (sucky) 28.8k PPP
connection , so I can get to installing NetBSD on this thing after
having my girlfriend ridicule me for almost two years now saying I'd
never get it running. :P
One question, though... my RD53 gets detected as an RD51 on bootup:
NetBSD 1.3I (GENERIC) #2: Sat Dec 19 21:23:38 CET 1998
mscpbus1 at uda0: version 10 model 7
mscpbus1: DMA burst size set to 4
ra0 at mscpbus1 drive 0: RD51
is this normal? have I screwed up some jumper settings somewhere?
Thanks for all your help guys.
 or rather, hauled away
 Once I'm out of school I'll get a 256k DSL, but right now I'm poor.
