 I was lucky enough to be given a VAX 4k500, but am now looking for advice on 
how to get an os installed... NetBSD 5.1.2 halts trying to boot from the CD, 
right after loading the kernel, I'm slogging around in mopd.c and friends 
trying to find out why, when moptrace tells me everything's getting there OK, 
that mopd says it's getting protocol request "9100" instead of "6001", and 
I'm still waiting on Encompass/DECUS-US to get my membership processed so I 
can get license keys for VMS. (Sigh!)

Anyone have advice/clues/pointers?
