Now that my 11-23+ ("George" :) seems to be happy, it's time to
start playing with the other new acquisition, an 11/24. Maybe that
one will be "Elvis".
It's got quite a lot of cards inside, but I haven't inventoried
them yet (this afternoon's task). Obviously I need to find out
exactly what it's populated with, and look for a user's guide and
technical manual on bitsavers.
Keeping in mind that I know nothing about this machine yet, what
should I do as a "quick start"? I have powered it up and the fans
and power-ok lights come on, so that's a good beginning.
There are no disk drives and all the ribbon cables were cut by a
previous rescuer :( Does it have a console ODT mode so I'll at
least know it's alive or dead? Where would the console port be?
