I rescued an AViiON 4300 (I think, I'd have to pull it away from my desk
to look, and that's a frightening prospect) from near doom.  It's a neat
machine, but the OS refuses to reload.  I've tried everything I can
think of, and it just won't go.  I'm preparing a listing of things to
get rid of, and it might be on that list.  However, shipping to NH might
be a little cost prohibitive for you. :/

It's got a 33MHz 88k, 32M RAM, and two 504MB SCSI disks in it.  I've got
some OS tapes, a console monitor w/ keyboard, and a small SCSI enclosure
as well.
