Intersting... Well, you probably can put a newer board in, but it
depends... What you have to do is take the entire thing apart and see what
it has right now, it may be an odd shape... Since you have three of them, I
would say fix up one of them to the normal 286 config, and then use the
other two to make one or two upgraded versions, depending on what's wrong
with them. Sounds like fun...
