well it *is* the/an actual development system when the complement of cards
are installed. True, there is an 1802 run console in there too but so is
the card cage. It boots into a monitor and and would run CDOS ( if I could
ever find it.) and MOPS( i think) for ICEing another 1802 system through the
micromonitor calculator pad.

Sounds like maybe the C.D.S III (the previous version #007) Development
System. Was it a mostly rackmounted card cage?
