Ask Ragge. Maybe he can give you some docs. There are already some VAX
6k bits in the source, but nothing usable.

Wasn't it Isildur who got 4.3BSD-Tahoe running on the MV4k705a?
Would be cool to have a patch to get it on a 6K too...

I did a full build of -Tahoe on my MV III last weekend with the source
from the CSRG CDROMs. (To replace that Quasi-BSD stuff, that I used to
bootstrap the machine...) Was not hard to do. But now I have to put the
CSRG patches from the PUPS archive into this, as plain -Tahoe does
support only the KA630 on the QBus side...
