Dumb huh, it's at least secure!

Ok go to the netbsd site and nose around, the proceedure for breaking into
VMS is there... if not get me off line and I'll drag you through it.

It's obvious you aren't familiar with VAXen or VMS enough to know that if
the vax is set up to auto boot you must first get out of that state to
invoke sysboot for the uafalternate thing. It not all that hard if you
can find the "break" key or the halt button (MVII).
