No problem getting an infoserver, I must admit slight embarrassment at not
remembering that, also in not remembering that the infoserver was the
recommended load device for the 6xxx series VAXen. I hope my infoserver
isn't at work since I'm not going to be back there till next Thursday....
Ah, a slight problem in that my DELNI *is* at work along with my AUI-BNC
transceivers and I know I won't be able to fuss around with netbooting
things on the corporate network - I'd have to create an AUI or thinwire
network to do it.
Thanks for the reminder though :)
