   Oh wow...I didn't know you could do that. I have a 6150 here (from
 BSD Bob) that I'd love to stick some more disk in. I will have to
 investigate this further. :)

   I'm running 4.4BSD on mine. It's a really neat machine. I just got
 a megapel board for it (thanks Gordon!) and now I need to find a tube
 and a mouse. >>

Mine runs AIX 2.2.1, but just in mono and I need a 6157 controller card so I
can use my tape drive. I think my RT has a 286 development board in it and I
have the software to run it still wrapped up. I might have to power it up and
see what i've been missing.
