	Ok... first and foremost, thanks to Emmanuel Stiebler for getting the 1.4
TK50 tape to me so very quickly, and thanks also to Brian Chase for
volunteering to do so. It's people like those two that have convinced me
not to give up.

	Here's what I've got: VAXStation II/GPX (MicroVAX II with the QDSS video
option, 8-plane), KA630A-1.3 version CPU, TK50, RRD40 (with dedicated
controller), DHV11, RQDX3, and DELQA all in a nice WorldBox cabinet.

	When I attempted to boot the 1.4 tape tonight, using the command B/3 MUA0
it -almost- got there. It progressed to displaying the NetBSD autoboot
banner, but then almost immediately halted with this error.

?07 SCB ERR3.

	Does anyone recognize that? At first, I thought it might be a SCSI board I
had installed causing problems, but I pulled it out and shuffled cards
around to keep the bus grant continuity intact. No go.

	Do I need to be worried about console EPROM versions, or some similar
hardware obscurity?

	Thanks in advance. More system details available on request.
