Well, the MIPS boxes were quiet a lot faster than VAX systems.

What do you mean by "early"? ULTRIX for MIPS begins
at 3.something, although these releases weren't very
useful and don't support a lot of hardware.
What DECstation model do you have? This will most likely
limit the minimum ULTRIX release.
For general ULTRIX archeology, I would recommend the
simh VAX 11/780 emulator.
