The "OMTI-8" really refers to several different controllers, some of which
are MFM and some of which are ESDI. There are several varieties of ESDI
controller in addition, each of which having different features.

If you can find a part number, I could probably tell you which you have.

What appears to be a complete SR10.2 install of DOMAIN/OS. 10.2 is an
'undesireable' release as it there is no fix available for the November
1998 clock rollover bug. Unpatched DOMAIN/OS is pretty much guranteed to
fall over dead with this problem. The patch is avilable only for 10.4.1

10.3.5 should be the minimum rev of SR10 you look for (like you wouldn't
want to run a Solaris 2.1 system), with 10.4.1 being the most recent

Alternately DOMAIN/IX (SR9) could be fun and is the last SR to support
some of the older machines (older than either of yours).
