   Errr, my 11v03 has RX02s, thank you. Although it's very possible
they're an upgrade.

   That is without doubt the prettiest computer I ever owned. My G5 is
close, but the PDP11V03-L beats it. :)

   OK, I just logged into my linux box at home and looked on the
inventory list. It's a DIBOL microm, and it's on the quad-height board;

   I'm still going to lay eyeballs on the LSI-II when I get home,
because the "CIS" thing is ringing bells.

   Nah, it looks like it was just a brain fart.
