I am not able to drag in an MVII crate into the office to get it online
for some test, but, I did manage to waltz in the door with a MV3100/10
under my arm and not draw too many stares.  It has 16mb of ram and 5
of the RZ25 drives, plus I have a couple of 1 gig things I can hang
off the back.  If I load up one drive with various systems, what
would be the ones of choice for the gurus to have loaded, and what
kinds of compile switches, kernel configs, etc., do we need to get
the most useful info out of the critter.  The is the slowest box
I have, except for the MVII critters.   I will try rolling Bonnie,
ttcp, and bytebench on it.  Is there anything else the gurus need
to help figure out/obtain/etc., the needed info to push the slow
VAXen along?

I could put up a generic account such as netbsd (original, right?)
with a generic password, and give whomever wants su on it, and let
them wrangle it out to their hearts content.  That way, the gurus
could run up whatever they think is useful.
