OK, pardon my myriad of questions tonite, but I'm learning something
totally foriegn here. I've done some hunting, and it appears that I was
right, the pair of small PDP-11's aren't 23's their 73's. I wan't to see
if I can get them to boot, however, I'm wondering how I should connect the
terminal. Do I use a straight serial cable 9600 8-N-1, null modem cable,
or what.

I'm already getting the impression that I'm going to end up building a
cable for the VAXstation 2000. Based on what I've been able to find out on
that. Hopefully the snow tonite isn't to bad, I don't think I've got any
spare connectors laying around right now. Probably a good thing, I'd be
tempted to build the cable right now :^) Is this the correct penout for
the VS2000 console cable?
