<The PC500 seems to be a display with a 5.25 inch floppy drive and some
<electronics. It is mounted on top of the RCD31 unit which is in a pizza
<box style case. Is this some sort of PC clone or maybe a DecMate?

It's called a Vaxmate. what it is is a PC/AT clone(sorta) with a 8mhz 286
and most had 2meg of ram, wd1003 HD controller, an st225(rd31) or
st251(rd32) and a Lance eithernet interface. The floppy is RX33 (1.2mb).

These are nice machines and were aimed at running as a diskless workstation
to vaxen on eithenet using PCSA and later Pathworks networking. It will run
dos3.3 and 5.0 that I know of.
