Here is sample picture found on the web

This may better date the likely styles of boards and drives I have. I don't recall any of the original computers at work were of the small form factor version in the same series, although I'd expect the parts involved would have still been similar if they had been.

I checked the label on my box.  On the serial number sticker, it says
"DPENM P600/128/100".   Another label  says "ENP600".  On the rear, it
says Series PD1006.   Has the usual Windows 2000 and Intel inside stickers.

There's a 500 MHz one at RG:

So definitely Compaq EN series, just not the one folks are used to seeing.
