it boots up from 000 000 to the TTY, I can type in programs, etc.

this is possible based on what I read here:
To clarify, I meant I don't think you can interface with the vt50 with loop
20ma, so instead I wanted to split the IO between the TTY for program
storage and vt50 using M7856 serial card.
I am guessing this is the way to go, but I have never done this before.
Good plan? Anyone have this kind of set up now?
