We've run it on a 6000-440 for a couple of years here. Worked just
fine. This with Ultrix 4.4. We never upgraded to 4.5. But since the
hardware broke down six months ago, we rolled out 8650 back in. :-)
We'll probably start switching to NetBSD on it soon though.

Only wished that the CI was supported. Does anybody around have
programming documentation for CI and HSC controllers?

KERMIT works, but is a bit slow. That's the only objection I have.
