Hmm, I *think* that's a first edition; I'm pretty sure that's the manual 
we have, although we have a second edition (which contains a picture of 
the hardware on the front cover).

If I'm right, then that book's more of a user guide (obviously rather 
useful still!) - what I've not ever seen is any kind of technical manual 
which presumably accompanied the system (unless RML did something odd 
like send in support engineers to set up and administer their systems)

One day I'll bump into an ex-RML employee who can fill in details, but 
so far they seem rather elusive!
