Yes, but NetBSD doesn't support any XMI or VAXBI devices to
begin with. Part of the deal here is to get these machines
up with Ultrix and then slowly migrate them to NetBSD (or any
XMI/BI enabled BSD for that matter). Ultrix is in various ways
the best start. But right now it seems like VMS is the first
step to getting anything done at all :-(
