OK, I'm only running three MicroVAXIIs, 7 MicroVAX3100s (2 are m76) and two
MicroVAX2000s. FOr OSs I run VMS5.2, 5.44, 7.3 and Ultrix32V4.2. I currently
have 4 RD54s and 4 RD53s functional and a few SCSI drives. Maybe the differnce
is my copy of 5.44 is is the DEC release from back then when I got the machine
(MVII GPX) as part of the severence along with all the paks. With the full
DECWindows plus Pathworks RD54 is pretty much full and that with swap and page
on a separate disk.
