I am working on a port yes. The DEC 3000/300 is a bit different from the
other models in the DEC 3000 series. I have a DEC 3000/500 which is
similar to your 3000/600, but I planned to first get the 3000/300 to
work and then work on the other models. Perhaps I should change my plan
on this.

The machine doesn't want to boot from disk or network, so none of the
firmware upgrade procedures I found works :( I guess it should be
possible to recover the firmware via the SROM miniconsole port, but I
haven't found any info on that one.
