Yeah, I think the 5400 and 5500 are Q-Bus.

I think the 5100 is a 3100 with an R3000... and a single slot that's used
to allow more serial ports.

Ahhh.... what are the Micro-Vaxen?? Are they MIPS-based, or really Vax
microprocessor systems?

Thanks - I'm writing the code to assume a 3100 with R3000, so we'll see
what happens!
