Tru64 version? Does it support an ES40, or
do you need an NHD kit?

You're sure?

Re: True64 installation

i am using True64 5.1 B.

My console setting is both on serial from the monitor and the hyper terminal.Is it possible to change com2 to be the main console. i need a way out.

Re: True64 installation


That doesn't make sense...

What does the output of

P00>>> show console

give you ?

Tru64 5.1B is supported on an ES40 without any need for NHD CDs etc.



P.S. It's Tru64 NOT True64...
