The latter, or perhaps it runs from DOS but it takes over all the
ports, both serial ports would support terminals, and the parallel port
would support a printer. Actually it would probably have to run over
some OS so that it could emulate hard drives as files, since the normal
PDP-11 hard drive was much smaller than todays 60gb monster.
