Yeah, baby! I remember somebody demo'ing the T5100 running Unix in the
late 1980's (prob 1989). I think a NeXT cube was being demo'd at the same
meeting. I don't think I've ever had a worse case of hardware envy than I
had that day :-)

I think Interactive Systems ported Unix to the T5100, so if you can find
an old 386 version, it probably has the drivers. Let me know if you get
it working. I think I have both a T5100 and a box of Interactive Unix in
storage someplace.

Hope you got the monitor cable. Damn hard to find by itself.
