I have one, but it is tagged as a CDC Cyber 910. I also have a much bigger
2500T, but it does not work (major help needed, like rebuilding a Fujitsu

You are going to want and OLD version of IRIX (around version 3), as these
boxes were fairly quickly kicked off the support wagon (SGI seems to be
kind of bad about that). These old things are not incredibly usefull Unix
boxes, as X was never (to my knowledge) ported to them. The graphics are
quite good even today, as it probably has a board stuffed with Geometry

I do not have a boot tape. I need one, as well as one for the much bigger
and later 4D/380 Powerseries box.
