Something else caught my eye upon re-visiting that ad. Either that machine 
never ran HP2000 TSB, or someone has pulled a lot more cards than just the 
memory. I'm quite certain that a system with those cards could not run TSB 
as is.

My guess is either someone pulled lots of I/O cards, or, the seller did a 
quick google search on 2116 and found some mention of TSB so he assumed it 
was a TSB box. Not necessarily at all.
