    a few years ago, I installed NetBSD 1.6 on my VLC4000. It hanged every now
    and then (several times a month). I finally tried OpenBSD 3.1 and it never
    hanged nor crashed since. It's been running 3.7 fine from its release till
    now. I don't know if NetBSD's VAX support has stabilized now, but I thought
    it might be of interest to you to be aware that at least another OS runs
    fine on this hardware.
