You're not kidding. The installation of MS-DOS on the disk resides in the
"SYSTEM" directory.

That aside, I get the impression they used GEM desktop (there are small
components stuck in with the installation of ventura publisher -- either it
came with ventura or was part of the system...)

There is also a more "standard" monitor plug next to the strange one (on the
same card)...

Thanks for the attempt. If they made an 8000, maybe I should keep an eye
