    From what I can tell, the Corvus was an external hard drive that
connected to a number of machines over some kind of network. I never used
the Corvus stuff but I think it must have been relatively common at one
time. I've seen a number of Corvus cards floating around. I've also seen
one or two of the drives. I had/have some Corvus PCs cards and I did know
where there were a couple of thin manuals for it.
