Yes, you can in fact, if you set up a mop boot server on something. I
use a Debian Linux box with mopd installed to boot NetBSD on my
VAXstation 3200 (basically a MicroVAX 3500 in a BA23). Of course, this
requires a DEQNA or DELQA board, which should be easy to find on eBay
for less than $20 (or from someone on the list).
