Well, if it's any consolation to anyone, at least it went to a list
member.  I presume I'll be running AIX on it, and you may be assured
I'll come groveling for help with it. 

Seems as though it had either a 10bt or 100bt port on the back. Are
the disks just standard SCSI-II, will it take wides, do I need some
sort of odd spud like thing?

What about the CD? Is it a normal CD, or do I need to spring for
something odd.

Finally, where do I get AIX? and what about the boy?
