And a few things I've noticed about it are:
-- It says "digital" (lowercase like that) on the front. :-)
-- it has a third power supply connector to the MB, and that PS is rated to
ptu 33A (!) out on the +5
-- It has the CPU on a separate small daughterboard. A jumper there seems to
select speeds, up to maybe 100 or so. I have a 486dx2/66 chip in it at
present, which will run real flaky at 80, and not at all at 100. :-)
-- It has a _very_ loud beep when you power it up.
-- It wants only _parity_ ram -- there's no option in CMOS to disable that. I
have a couple of 16s and a couple of 4s in there at present, all the parity
parts I was able to scrounge. Anybody have some they might wanna trade?
-- Slots are ISA only, but they're _all_ 16-bit.
-- This thing's built like a tank!
I'd originally planned to put OS/2 in this box. Now I'm lots less enthused
about that OS than I was at one time, so I dunno what I'm gonna do with it.
Thoughts on this?
