That would be useful, I could use the VAX as a gateway to the pdp-11.
Unfortunately, it won't boot from DECnet over the serial port (I've
just tried) although it claims it can boot from DECnet over Ethernet
and over serial (but using a different serial controller).

No other removable media... but I am thinking it may be possible to
install a DEC o/s using a pdp-11 emulator (with any emulated removable
media which may be necessary) but making the emulator access the
real pdp-11's MFM disk during install - I do have a MFM controller
for a PC.

You all may be looking forward to telnetting into a real pdp-11 when
I manage to do that.
