yeah. I remember compiling being a lot more "fun" on those...

And the RT 6152 w/ the crossbow "rt on a MCA card" thing I think  
worked with a PS/2 Mod 60 shell. boot began from BIOS on the 286 mobo  
and then switched over to complete on the RT card. CompSci here used

using dual crossbows to get a dual CPU fire-breathing monster. well,  
you know, at least not slow as molasses
