If we're speaking of the VS2000: Yes, it can. It's painfully slow
since DMA isn't supported yet (Ragge: HINT,HINT ;)) but it works. I'm
using a VS2k as a webserver which is being netbooted (since the PROM
won't allow me booting of the SCSI disk). Check
for details.

Basically it's plain SCSI, so just give it a try!

Uhmm - the NetBSD/vax pages might need a major overhaul, IMHO...
