After fixing a few hardware faults I managed to get my VXT2000
going last month. During a moment of desparation while I was sussing out 
the hardware fault I tried loading the VXT image on my VS3100, it works!!
screen resolution is lower but with the smaller display &
hw floating point it seems faster. The only drawback is having to 
manually specify some of the config options (font server & host address)

I use mop to boot both netBSD & now the VXT software, is there an easy way 
of setting up a boot menu on the VS3100. I want to boot netBSD by default
and the VXT image by manual override. The VS3100 is diskless
