You take me by surprise - do the V7.2 drivers (network, graphics) work
with 7.3 as well?

Are you talking about the sources?
The binaries are available on the Freeware V5 CD.

The one at home has a 233 MHz CPU, 152 MB of memory (added 128 to the
original 24), an internal 518 MB Toshiba SCSI disk drive with Windows NT
SP6 (several years ago, this was the PDC of my home Windows domain), and
an external disk enclosure with two more disks - one with additional
Windows file, and one with OpenVMS on it.
I don't remember the exact configuration of the other one (the one on
the shelf in the office), but it is a slower model (166 MHz) with a
single internal disk and OpenVMS on it. You can find it in operation
We built this cluster during the 2006 DECUS symposium in Dï¿œsseldorf,
Germany. Half a dozen folks brought hardware and we just connected it to
a three architecture, mixed physical/virtual, grossly mixed version,
highly unsupported cluster :-)
