Although it may be specific to the S/34 alone, the S/34 cannot use a
terminal emulation card as its primary terminal/system console. You can
use it to emulate the other consoles, or any printer, but not the primary
one (in socket 0).
So these cards are of no use to someone with an IBM machine, a couple
spools of TwinAx, but no terminal - like myself.
Again, this may only relate to the S/34, but... FYI.
