Well, the 7012-370 will *walk* v5.1. Verry verry slowly.
BTW, I bought a pallet of 7043-140 boxes last week at $8/ea for the
graphics adapers (GXT120P) and the PCNET32 10/100 cards. I'm sure the
scrapper thought he was ripping me off by burying a much older system at
It's a 7012-397 w/512MB RAM, 2 4.5GB drives, CDROM and 8505 8mm tape
drive, GXT800M and a 10/100 ethernet adapter. And with the deskside "foot".
I wasn't too upset about the ripoff. :)
And, if anybody has a 43P-140 and needs RAM, I have a crapload of
64MB DIMMs. As far as I know, *only* the 7043-140 will run them.
AIX v5.1 was the last version to support any non-CHRP platform. The
7043-150 (43P-150), F50, and B50 are the oldest systems that'll run v5.2
