I've got another new toy, a Vaxstation 3100 M48, with TZ30 tape drive
and RRD40 CD Drive.  It has 32 Mb of ram, but no hard disks.  I sort of 
successfully got it netbooted today into multiuser mode, but I run into 
the following problem.  So far it's happened twice, once with trying 
to run gcc, the second time running top.

It says to me:
  panic: Machine check
     syncing disks .... Trap: type 2, code 0, pc80000040a, psl 4080000
     panic: trap
  ?06 HLT INST
     PC = 800C18EA

Now I remember reading in Brian's HOWTO about not being able to netboot
with more than 16 Mb of RAM.  Is this still the case, and could this 
be what's biting me, or should I be barking up another tree?
