I've got an IBM-made OEM machine (mine is branded by Lap Power) with a big
daughter-board with seven or so ISA slots and three VLB slots. The mobo
features a Blue Lightning processor and parity RAM. That's really the only
reason I still keep it around (space constraints...). I used to have two,
since I had rescued the chassis from one off the street without knowing that
it was, then failing to find the processor =). It only served as a stool for a
while, though, and was recently rationalised into the garbage.

I wonder if I should set it up this evening just to see how it performs as a
NetBSD machine.

Oh, it had an all-plastic DLC-33 FPU from IIT, too.
