Oh, the big thing about doing this.... Is it a Dual Height, or Quad Height
/73 CPU? If it's a Quad Height, he's lucky, and it'll be a piece of cake,
if it's a dual height, he'll need another board with a bootstrap on it, and
a board with Serial Ports.

I use a WQESD controller, that is currently in the system *only* to boot
it! For the SLU's I'm using a DLV11-J. The proper solution is to have a
board DEC made that contains the boot ROMS and a couple SLU's.
