Gosh you don't mean an old MicroVax3100 do you, Nah !
Prolly an DecStation3100(MIPS), right ?
I know the 5000 you mention is a MIPS box.

Heck, I have an DS2100 sitting next to me & a DS5200 on
top o'that . I remember hearing about a port to the
MIPS but don't remember which Rx000 it was to.

task of porting Linux-Vax.

Have you by chance seen an FAQ/README/etc... on the
caveats & gotcha's ... ?
Any Help appreciated, JimL
