Well, the consensus is that I really don't need that
RDM board in order to boot the Vax. So, I'm going to
go ahead and see if I can boot something (anything) on
this machine. I figure I'll start with NetBSD, since
it's free and easy to get.
I have no disk controller. But I do have an M7454 TU80
controller. Will this controller work with a normal
pertec tape drive, like a Cipher?
Since I have SCSI nine track drives, I can write a
tape from my PC (linux box) and then I can move the
tape over to the Vax. (hopefully). Once there, how do
I boot - is the boot device switch controlled by the
RDM, or something else?
