  So you're saying unsupported means "It don't work"?
  Corollary question #1: Are NetBSD and (ahem) Linux/vax the only
unices that run on this critter? Ultrix is unobtainium, therefore
doesn't count.
  Corollary question #2: If I replace the DEQNA, is VMS 6.2 or OpenVMS
7.2 the better choice for this machine. Strictly fooling around, no
real production usage.
