hmm, speaking of.....
i've got a VXT2000+ here, and a copy of the software it runs. the guy i got
it from was convinced that it was only possible to boot this thing from another
Ultrix/VMS machine, but stated that he didn't really know anything about
NetBSD. if all it does is netboot, i should be able to netboot this thing off
of whatever i have laying around? NetBSD, VMS, or Solaris. probably Solaris
since my sun boxes have the most disk space of the machines here.
that would be cool, cause i don't have a copy of VMS laying around and i don't
really feel like monkeying around with Ultrix ever again in my life.
if someone could confirm this maybe i'll add it to my list of things to do.
