MicroVax and OpenVMS for dummies

And to answer one of your smaller questions: DHCP was not introduced until 7.3 (the current and last VAX distribution).  Also, you can get an AUI to twisted-pair converter cheap on ePay or elsewhere.  

To log in without the current user password, look for "conversational boot" in either the VMS FAQ or (I think) on Hoff's site.  

Sounds like a great box.  Enjoy!  -- Ian

Once you get in, do a "SHOW LICE", if it has licenses installed.  If it
does, you might want to save them.
