I'm afraid you are stuck with AIX (which is not such a bad OS)
because the 320H is a MCI machine and the last time I looked
for alternatives I didn't find any.

If you don't expect to run X11 the 320H with AIX 4.2.1 is decent
nothing to write home about ....

Mine came with an Ethernet card with AUI and BNC. It is a standard
MCI card.

Don't know! All I found out with my different RS6000/PowerPC boxes is
that RAM is not interchangeable (thanks big blue!!) Only my 7011/250
was satisfied with some PC memeory
