Look at the images on my site, my only boards are MVME2603 (I shall
probably get get 2700 or 5500 soon). I have 2 MVME2600 running in
production since 6 weeks ago doing 100+ VME interrupts and 64 DMA
transfers peer second.

this includes images, patches...

Note that I basically only use the standalone (for development), server
(only one of the producttion machines has disk, the other ones boot
from it) and nfsroot (other production machines) images, the other ones
may be out of date...
