Apollo Domain Aegis SR 9.7.1 lives, huge Y2K bug!

While cleaning out the workshop, I decided to plug in a few old Apollo

I was eventually able to get one machine (DN4500?) to boot into the
Display Manager.

The major trick was, I had to set the calendar date back prior to Y2K,
otherwise the DM
program would crash with an 'unable_to_map' error message.

The Fuji SMD drive on my DN660 spun right up, and the 660 appeared to
boot, but I have
a minor video cable problem that prevented me from seeing the action
(other than on the disk
controller status leds).

Anyone interested in some Apollos?
