I've finally gotten my VaxStation 3100 out also (it was given to me ages
ago) and have installed 1.5.2 without a hiccup.

I was lucky enough to have acquired a machine with a CD-ROM drive so I
made a CD-R out of the ISO image I downloaded and it booted first go. I
was definitely impressed. You guys on port-vax have done a great job -
The next trick is to get my DAT drive working, with the idea of the vax
acting as my backup server.
Do you have plans for your VaxStation Erik?
