Did you connect Pin 8 and 9 of the console port ? I didn't have any
problems booting my VS 2000. (BTW: Better use it as X-terminal with the
VXT boot software. Really cool. For NetBSD it's a bit slow.)
If you need a monitor with keyboard and mouse adapter, maybe i have one
over soon, i don't use the built-in console.
W=FCrzburg isn't that far away from Rottweil :-)
