Hmm.. it seems that the pdf is containing thestuff that I've already read
somewhere on HP's website.
There are two possibilities:
[>>> B/R5:10000000 DKA400:
[If you are booting from an InfoServer device, enter a command that
[specifies root 1. For example, on a VAX 6000 computer, enter:
[>>> B/R5:10000100/X:D/B:6 ET0
Ok, the first should fit with an abbrevation:
(I have a VAX4000-300 not an VS4000/90, nor I have an VAX6000..)
and this boots until the message with the write protected disk
dua3..(sorry, don't have it handy..) and than the system hangs.
When I simply boot B dua3 the install system asks for a date
and I finally get a "$". Thats all..
That's why I've asked what todo..
