Based on the Era of the computer I'd guess it was a system that was part of
some Military system. The first systems I ever saw removable HD's on were
systems modified for the Military. That way the drive could be pulled out
and locked up.

Of course now it's finally getting easy to find the sleds, one of my PC's
has 4 different sleds, each with a different OS.
