MicroVAX 3100's don't, VAXstation 3100's do.

If it's a VAXstation 3100 you can do this, if it's a MicroVAX 3100, I
honestly don't know if you'd need to. Personally I've never tried to hook
a tube to a 3100, and have never wanted to, but then I've only got one.

Bummer, I hope it's not gone, I refer to the one table there regularly, and
don't think I've ever gotten smart and copied it. I can't get to it either.
