Unfortunately, the Xenix is specific to Altos, and to the best of
my knowledge specifically to that model of Altos.
They used multiple CPUs in the box (not as SMP of course, but for
different purposes). Plain PC Xenix will not run on it.
The box is powered by a 286 though.... so if that person's media
says Altos on it, it could be what I'm looking for.
I'm not on classiccmp... can you give me some info on it, and for
now, can you forward me his msg ?
