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???).
