Is the

        RZ26 is indeed 1GB SCSI.

        The DEC 3000-600 is a 175MHz EV4.
        Memory from 32MB to 512MB.
        Turbochannel. 114 specint 92.

        Does Linux support TURBOchannel?
        I presume NetBSD does ... but I know
        at least one of the free OSes does not.

        OpenVMS Alpha, yes from V1.5-1H1
        onwards (i.e. almost any version you
        happen to have).

        Ultrix never ran on these birds.

        Digital Unix (now known as Tru64
        but probably in the middle of another
        name transition) did support them
        but I have a feeling that support
        was dropped in the most recent version.
        And in this case they actually pulled
        the support code, so it absolutely
        will not work.

        I guess a PC keyboard (LK451 or such???)
        but I don't have any docs to hand. Almost
        all of these boxes will work with a serial
        console ... plug in and type
                set console serial
        (otherwise it switches to the
        graphical console partway through
        the boot and if all you have is
        serial yo uthink it's died on you!!)
