Unfortunately, the monitor that may have been hooked up to the machine was
nowhere to be found... and this being my first classic computer, I don't
have such a thing lying around either. :o(

I read something about hooking a serial terminal up to the machine
directly... Forgive me for dumb questions, but I'm assuming a serial
terminal is one of those boxes that I keep seeing that has hookups for mice,
keyboards, SVGA monitors, and the like? Also called a 'Terminal Station' I
believe... Will this work? I don't even know if I'm asking the right
question here, and I could be horribly, stupidly, wrong. :o) This thing
comes from 'way back in the day' for me, before I was even interested in
computers, so I don't know a whole heck of a lot right now. More research I

Thanks again.
