  I was hoping that someone else would respond to this but here goes:

  He doesn't say where things stop.  On booting Unix after removing the digi-boards, you should get warnings unless you also uninstalled the drivers for the boards.  I would assume though that they were able to continue and run VTS.

  The only problem in VTS would be that you won't be able to use the digi-board ports.  In the system administration menu/support peripherals/select communications ports screen you would use the <F3> Delete key to remove the no-longer functioning ports.  If they're not already there, you may wish to add the standard ports if they're available for VTS (namely tty1a and tty2a I believe).

  This is just what I figure would be the case.  Perhaps our field support people could speak from experience (Mike or Rob???).
