  Why don't I buy it?

  Well, for one, I don't see very many drives installed, just a lot of SCSI
cables hanging loose.

  And for two - the last four of these I got at WierdStuff and Mike Quinn's
- cost me about $20 each - the MQ one was upside-down in a pile of beige
PCs and was $5... and they all had drives and OSes - including the CDROM
and 4MM tape drive installed in one - it also had the DEC RGB/Mouse/Kybd
cable on it... these units are common as dirt and I know folks with
(literally) stacks of them. I imagine if you ask the List - you might get
one for El Cheapo...

"Good luck in your bidding!"

He's also got some DECServer 'tape units' for WayTooMuchMoney(tm) - same
thing - lots of cables, no HDs.

  God Bless eBay!
