Now that looks familiar, we used to have a lot of those around here,
primarily as workstations, or for running batch jobs.  I think they're
finally all gone.  I don't think I ever scavenged any doc's for it either,
as I had no desire to have a Unix system that is that big and slow.

You should be able to plug a normal (non-IBM) terminal in, or get a video
card for it.
