The biggest iron I have at home currently is a triple CPU AlphaServer
2100 5/250 with a gig of RAM. (soon 1.5 gig) I use the AlphaServer to
play with Tru64. I would use it for NetBSD development, i.e. cross
compiling. Unfortunately gcc has nasty LP64 bugs that makes it hard to
use an Alpha for cross building a LP32 target, hppa in this case. 

I would like to get:
(VAX 6620 with 320 MB RAM, FDDI, CI, Starcoupler, HSJ40C and BA350)
and use it to do some NetBSD hacking on it. Three phase power is no
problem, but 1000 EUR is to expensive and I don't know how to get this
beast two stairways up into my flat.
