The onboard ethernet is not yet supported, but you should be fine if you
can get your hands on a DEQNA or DELQA.  

From what I gather from recent discussion on the list, DSSI is supported.  
On the Q-bus systems the low-level protocol is pretty much irrelevant.  
As long as the controller presents the drives as MSCP storage devices, the
NetBSD/vax kernel will do the right thing.
