Hi Lee,

Ta! Whilst I can't exactly take much credit for the systems (other than
providing the space to store them), I'm glad you like the pics.

I /think/ it runs RTE-IVB, but it may be some variant of version 6; I'd
have to take a closer look at the disc packs - most of them have some kind
of label.

Excellent; I'm hoping this is the case. IIRC, there's at least one labeled
"master". Next time I'm up there, I'll take a copy all of the labels & post
them here for analysis.

Cool - I don't suppose you can remember which i/f board they're supposed to
be connected to, do you? I tried to make sure all the little labels on the
tags were visible in the card cage pictures, so maybe one will jog your memory?

I'll move the disc packs, I've got a little office attached to the side of
the warehouse which is pretty dust, dirt & moisture free; can't do much
with the drives though, they're too heavy to get over the step, and
wouldn't really fit in the office anyhow. I can cover them with a tarp though.

Will do; thanks for the pointer.

Cheers, Ade.
Be where it's at, B-Racing!
