Yep, it does - after finding this "press reset-and-power simultaniously" work around it comes up to the PROM like expected

When I got this machine a couple of years ago (it's been in storage for the past 5 or 6 years...), it came with install tapes and two large cardboard boxes full of manuals - alas I can't find them at the moment. All I have is the "System Managers Manual" that - oddly enough - is essentially the original CSRG 4.3BSD documentation for the VAX-11 series in a nice Sony binder ;-)

Well, I've found exactly on posting in the NetBSD archives that didn't work at first because of the dead NVRAM... Now it appears to boot but stalls before the login prompt - I'll investigate this further...
