Yeah, the boards are similar in dimension to DG Nova stuff or Sun VME, 
and they crammed a lot of stuff on them with all of the daughterboards 
-- it looks like the Ethernet board could hold up to four interfaces...

Unfortunately, I've now had time to trace down all of the cabling and 
there are no storage controllers (disk, tape, and floppy) present so 
this thing is likely to remain a very large boat anchor for the 
foreseeable future.  (Not that I'm likely to find media either :)).
