Well. The other machine draws 130 A 400 V 3 phase at power up. (Needed
to spin up the motor-generator that makes the 400 Hz 3 phase that the
machine needs.) Power draw at normal operation in a cut down config is
around 20 kW.=20
You can have a look at it:

Is there somewhere a DECSYSTEM20 that needs a new home? ;-)=20

Yes, I am lost since I saw this Big Iron (C) (R) (TM) in operation.=20

Ahh, so maybe the 8[78]xx are the ones with a MV FE. (Funny, a VAX with
a VAX console front end. Like my PDP-11 that had a T11 (=3D=3D PDP-11) ba=
RQDX3 for disk IO. )

Back to NetBSD: I will install NetBSD 1.6R on my MV3100-m95 tonight. I
hope I get the system bootable, given the trouble that the bootblocks
have with this class of machine.=20
