I had one of those. I think it was a 386 (might have been a 286), I know
it was a Wyse.

It was a full height desktop case, but only about half as wide as an
AT/XT. The processor was on an ISA card, and the keyboard socket was an
RJ-12 connector. I never had a matching keyboard, all I had was an
adaptor to go from the RJ-12 to a regular din-5 AT style keyboard.

I know you needed a special disk to configure the BIOS. I kept a copy of
the floppy taped inside the case so I didn't have to hunt around for it
if I made any changes.

I still have the keyboard adaptor. I may have other parts from the
machine, but I'm not sure. I might have kept the processor ISA card
because it was interesting, but I know the machine on a whole was junked.
I likely still have a copy of that setup disk somewhere as well.
