Well, this is more or less the expected behaviour. Noone has written the
IRQ setup code so far. The problem with the DS5000/120 is that we don't have
any documentation on that specific system. (Paul - are you listening ? :-))

The DECstation port isn't functional yet, but you are welcome to join us
if you have some programming experience. Kernel hacking is fun - sometimes :-).

If you only want a working system, try NetBSD or OpenBSD - both have a fully
functional port to almost all DECstation models.
