        If ... No, done that enough for one email.

        If you can get three KA820s (or KA825s)
        you should be able to get that to work too!
        (But you cannot mix KA820 & KA825).

        The Owner's Manual is available at:


        as is the Installation Guide.

        I *thought* I'd also scanned and sent an
        install guide for one of the VAXBI ethernet
        options, but I guess not.

        When I had one in the lab, my VAX 8350
        just mostly worked so I don't have too much
        experience of playing with the ethernet.
        The DSB32 and DMB32, and the CPU(s)
        and memory were all pretty straightforward.
        The only funny I remember with ethernet is
        that you need to cable up a little bit extra
        for the power required by the AUI in
        the bulkhead. But that may well have been
        the VAX 6000 ...
