that is only one possible configuration. Anyine that know MV2000 knows a
small SCSI disk will fit in the area above the PS. that and a RD53/54 you
have a very complete system. Or you can use any MFM for local swap and
page with NIcluster (LAVC).

A good use for the VS2000 in small environments with networking is modem
gateway, Print server or terminal server to anyother node.
