David Laight (sp?) has been doing a lot of work on sysinstall recently,
but I get the impression he's strictly an i386 man. I think he's based
reasonably local to me in Cambridge, UK, so I may offer him a loan of a
Vax if he's interested.

Seconded. One of my Vaxen runs as a webserver (with a homebrewed minimal
httpd daemon), and another as a tape server, so I'm pleased to see the
continued work on NetBSD/Vax.
