Turns out the Sony 200ES does sync-on-green, and I plugged it into a Sun
db13w3-to-hd15 adapter and it works with the gxt card. Yay.

And there was already a 50-to-68 adapter on the scsi chain. Yay again.

And the machine has 512MB of RAM, apparently 2MB of L2 cache. (I see two
1MB L2 cache simms, can't find a command to view this information from the
aix maintenance shell). Yay yet again.

Now I just need to put a scsi disk into the machine and install AIX, so I
can do something other than 'lsattr' :)

Thanks to jp for the advice and help. More news when it happens.

BTW, looks like the iMac I rescued at the same time has no cpu or battery
or ram or disks, so it may be sold for parts. I don't know that it's worth
hunting for the missing bits. Rev C strawberry iMac, no evidence of
missing magic smoke. Whee.
