For Xenix you need a Model 16 or 6000, since Xenix runs on an MC68000
processor that is not present in the Model 2 or 12.  The Model 2 could
be upgraded, though.  Not sure about the 12; it was a cost-reduced 2,
and an upgrade would probably require completely replacing the power
supply and card cage.
