I have a IBM PC/3270 and it has a three board set inside with all the
boards connected together. The board I described in my previous message
was in a system in a thrift store and I couldn't open it up to look inside
unfortunately. But it wasn't a 3270 PC because that model had a specific
model number (can't remember the number right now).
