I have the same chassis and pretty much the same cards as yours, awaiting time to
redo the supply for 240V and check it out.
I could not find a PDF for the M7940 (mine is the -M version) but did find this
page: http://hampage.hu/dr/dlv11.html

I'm interested in replicating the 11/03 running LSX in this interesting video:
I've paused and noted down the cards in that box and have slowly been acquiring them
over recent months.

Still looking for the 2RU bezel for mine...  could fabricate it from styrene I guess,
but that would be another priority -1000 project.
