Pro-350 anyone?

You have as below. You probably have 512Kbytes on the motherboard for a total
of 1Mbytes. You can do mono with your setup. To do color, you need another
2 bitmap planes, which come on the 001403 card, and a VR241 monitor (not
impossible to find). You also need an LK201 keyboard (pretty common) and a
cable for the monitor/keyboard.

As I mentioned, I have a daughter memory board you can have, and the right
cable. (Someone just gave me a box with an inordinate number of cables--
makes you wonder what ever happened to the monitors that could have gone
with them.) There is a 2% chance I have a 001403 card in storage, but I
won't be able to check that until April 10 or so.

I don't think you need to run the DECNA in the 6th slot. Mine is in the
5th slot (6th is an RTI, and that has to be 6th slot), and although I have
never actually gotten it to talk to anything yet (no other DECnet nodes), I
see it transmit and receive stuff on my network when I boot up; and it does
pass diagnostics, which transmit and receive.

Venix uses the console for the console. You can use the Printer port for
another tty if you have a "license" for more than one user. You can, I
think, fudge the license program at to increase the number
of users.
