I tried this in the little bit of time I had last
night. It works! I was able to write the tape from the
Linux box, move it to the Vax, and boot using 'b
mua0'. It takes a _really_ long time to boot (how many
times does it need to read the tape, anyway?), but it
boots and executes the installer. It's alive :).

So, the question is - is it possible to regenerate the
3.1 bootfs somehow to include driver support for a
TK50, or has something major changed that prevents
this from working?
