Did anybody reply to this question?
It seems like an important one.
Since I have some resources at home
   (Two, count em, Two!!! VAX system manuals)
  I think I'll try looking in to this one.

(Can't find direct reply eMail address
 from this letter, hence using list).

Well, thanks to all those who replied last time.

I think I may be getting somewhare with the vax.
cant get the tape drive or deqna cards working,
(their leds tell me something is wrong) but that is not what I am going
to be asking about.

When I try and boot the vax, I get

Loading system software,

%SYSBOOT-E-Unable to locate file DUDRIVER.EXE
    PC = 0000692B

now I can get into the sysboot utility, have no idea what to do here.
Is there a way I can get around this missing file, is the some command
at the chevrons (>>>) or the sysboot>
that I can use to get round this?
