Fluke actually did make a line of computers that were used as instrument
controllers in the late 70's and early 80's. These controllers had support
for serial port control and IEEE488, as well as touch screens (some models).

 From what I understand of these machines, they actually could run a couple
of different operating systems (types unknown), as well as several
different programming languages.

The first offerings from Fluke for automated instrument calibration and
control ran on these. I believe one of the model numbers was "1711".

Sorry for the vagueness, I've had brief contact with them only. You may
have found a disk for one of these controllers.
