[Details vary across models]


Typically 'maintenance panel' and 'configuration panel'.


The snake crawl is the maintenance panel; the snake is the contents of  the 
A and Q registers. Set "DISPLAY SELECT" to "SCROLL" and rotate the DATA  
scroll wheel to "AQ".


The maintenance panels are mostly lights; the configuration panels mostly  
switches.
