The follow up question then is, is there a reason to avoid 7.3 on lower end VAX 
models, say VAXstation 2000 or MicroVAX-II, both of which I have.

I suppose disk space is the most pressing issue. What about memory consumption in 
a basic install?

Or memory usage for options like TCP/IP or DECWindows.
