        The big-box machines (A2000, A3000, A4000) all come with ISA slots, which
are inline with the Zorro-II/III slots. The thing is, without a
bridgeboard installed, the ISA slots aren't active. They require the
bridgeboards, whether from CBM or others, to generate the various signals
on the bus. Of course, with them being inline with the Zorro slots, any
bridgeboard/ISA combination you install blocks the usage of at least two
Zorro slots.
