ok, took VMS tape 1/2 from work. tried booting from it:
?43 FILESTRUCT, MUA0
?06 HLT INST
PC = 00000D75
bad tape huh? i've got a SCSI TK50 here, i don't know if it works or not, but
what are the chances of getting a CD-ROM of VMS and "extracting" boot tapes
from it? my OS choices are NetBSD and Solaris, and i may be able to hang it
off of a VMS system at work.
other than that things are going well, as soon as i get this VMS system (or a
NetBSD system) setup, i can MOP boot the other two VAXen, but until then, it's
VMS playtime for me. i'm still on a quest for QBus SCSI cards, so if anyone
runs across any they are willing to let go of please let me know.
