In one of my wanderings this week, I ran across a Data General Aviion
rack. It looked like it had two servers and a disk array in the bottom.

My back reminded me that I'm not the slightest bit tempted to bid on it,
2nd floor apartment and all, but it sure did look nifty. Each unit had a
DLT drive (i think they were 20/40 drives even) and it looked fairly

Now the Alphaserver 4100 with three storageworks arrays and a tape
drive... that my mind overpowered my back on. But I probably will let it
go. What's a "B3052" in DEC terms, and is it worth noting if there's a
"B3052 Installed" sticker on it? It's looking like it's an updated PCI
backplane/motherboard? Or a 3.3 volt "saddle" ?
