I would imagine that doing the various IP flavours would be quite
straightforward as they are mostly provided as a BSD socket layer already, even
DECnet is more interesting, but probably not too hard (I have looked into it
briefly). I reckon a NETDRIVER wrapper around the socket interface of the
existing Linux DECnet code would do the job.
Incidentally, what's the magic for getting a freeVMS kernel to compile?
I have done all the bits in the HOWTO file but all it ever does (and I've tried
this with most releases now) is error:

Nobody else seems to have complained about this so it must be me - am I using
the wrong Linux kernel (2.4.18) ?
