yes, this is a strange incestuous mix of a Mayfair and a DECstation 
5k200. The i/o is entriely uVAX-3, the core is an R3000. If you replace 
the processor board with for example a KA650 you will have a uV3 instead. 
The memory is just normal MS630s, everything is compatible. 
if you dont want it please slavage the boards, disks, etc! :) 

On a similar note, i would hope that there is some NetBSD support for the 
DS5400 by now, i donated one to developers about a year ago.. 

happy hacking
