This takes a VSIMM? *poke* OK, that's what that empty socket is for, I

The fellow who gave it to me included a type 5 keyboard and mouse, so
that's covered. There's 24 meg of RAM installed, and a hard drive that I

Not really using a print server per se, at least not a *nix one. Just the
Windoze share services. Still mostly running Windoze boxes here.
