Subject: No Floppy boot for VS3100 ?

In the last weeks I tried to get my VAXes (VaxStation 3100 M30's and M38)
booting from floppy, but the last mails disencouraged me. Probably it's not
possible at all :-(

Is there anyone out there, who managed to boot miniroot.fs of NetBSD 1.4
from a floppy on a VaxStation 3100 and installed the OS then with a CD-ROM ?

If there is really no way to boot from a floppy, I've to install NetBSD 1.4
on a PC and do the NFS server boot and MOP thing (the nightmare now really
begins :-)

Thanks, to all who have supported me.
