Reading the HOWTO about netbooting NetBSD on a VAX, I've found a little
paragraph saying that only one type of ethernet card is supported to
netboot a VAX.
I have a DEQNA, and it is listed as not supported.
Maybe this HOWTO is a little outdated, and in the meanwhile NetBSD 1.4 is
able to handle a DEQNA in the netboot configuration?
I can't still make tries, I have to rebuild the AUI connector for the
DEQNA. Someone at the scrapyard had stolen it. :(
Howevere, other VAX users were able to explain wiring, so it's just a
matter of time...
P.S.: it is a VAXstationII/GPX, 9MB, RD53, DEQNA, TK50, VCB02 (4 planes,
removed, no monitor avaliable).
P.S.: yes, installing the TK50 in the 4000-300, I could be able to write a
boot tape. But wheather is becaming too hot for this job. :)
