Thank you very much for the time you took to compose that reply.  I
certainly appreciate that kind of willingness to help.

I have one the early DM machines.  I never got the DEC tulip interface
working.  Someting about the S ROM.  insmod old_tulip says Device
or resource busy, with a hint about module parameters and IO and
IRQ parameters.

Maybe I should put my old disk back in, with Linux on it, run
insmod -f tulip_upgd-2.2.o
to upgrade the tulip, then go back to the install and use the tulip interface 
to continue the install on the new disk?
