I am Michael from Germany. I own a second hand DECStation 5000 /200
with storage extension ( 2 hd with 360 and 620 MB) , a 8bit graphics
frame buffer card and a dec 19 " color monitor
(unfortunately the previous owner configuered the Xws X driver for
monochrome graphics ... I suspect he had a greyscale monitor and the
color monitor was bundled by the guy who sold me the station ...)
I have compiled kernels on pc (x86) linux machines and I have even
succeded in compiling a new kernel with cc under ultrix on the dec
to be able to use an external cd rom...
I do not have a lot of experience with programming (and even less
time) but I would be willing to help with testing.
I have the small hradware doc from dec that came with the station
(on paper ..) but I do not have any ultrix doc...
The machine runs ultrix 4.3 rev 44 boots from a KNOZ-AA boot prom
The disks are rz1 - RZ 55
rz2 - RZ 56
rz4 - CDROM (Toshiba)
