Right, the graphics "terminal" -- its really more like a PC, but
externally it looks like a terminal. Inside is a card cage,
processor, memory, tape controller, etc.

This would be the first I've heard of that; sounds like an internal
hack and not a product as I can't find any mention of software
products for the 2648A anywhere in web sites or HP docs. I don't
suppose you have a tape? :-).
