If it's the machine I think it is, it's a Sage 2 with a hard disk. A Sage
2 was a single-board (+ PSU and Drives) 68000 box with up to 512K RAM,
disk controller, 2 serial ports (terminal and modem), GPIB, and printer
port. It was quite nice hardware, and easy to hack about with (all chips
in sockets, schematics in the manual, etc).

There was a _good_ monitor in ROM (edit memory, registers, read/write
sectors, etc). It could (obviously) boot an OS from disk - the standard
one was (IIRC) the ucsd p-system.

Of course I could be thinking of some totally different Sage.
