|Features include (you'll love this :)

|486dx33 processor w/ 16Megs of ram (upgradeable with standard 72-pin

|non-edo simms)

|EISA bus complete with Adaptec and Compaq SCSI Controller,

|3COM 10/100 EISA NIC (3c597-tx)

|some other strange eisa nic (tokenring/aui/10bt)

|Connor (I think) 2 gig scsi drive preloaded with slackware 7.0!

|This thing boots off the Adaptec scsi card w/ no problems. The 3com

|in 10 base mode. The other nic is too strange to figure out. The

|Compaq scsi controller works, but not with Linux. Also, since the built

|in video card has 256Kb of ram, it is fairly useless as an

|X-terminal...trust me on that one :)

|All this powerhouse needs is a monitor, ps/2 keyboard and ps/2 mouse.

|...and a loving home.

|First reply gets this puppy, otherwise it's time for a sturdiness test
