I've a 5364, probably the same. anybody else got one?
Mine's a desktop form factor and was lucky to get the dual floppy 5150 pc
that seems to control it. I use the 5150 to IPL the 5364 and takes about 5
minutes. eventually I get a passwoid prompt and I dont know what it is. I'm
not sure how the menus work. also got with it a 3194 twinax terminal but no
keyboard so I can't use that right now. both units came with disks in their
drives but not sure what their content is. I really should make a writeup
about this beast on my collection site. It's really quite impressive.
