I'm pretty sure these aren't going to need any sort of incompatible
drivers. I suspect that almost any 'nix of a sort will run on them
just fine. The drive connectors at the top are obviously IDE and
floppy. They should "just work" as long as you power them.
Heck, with a good enough power supply you could probably run a rack of
them as long as the data/address/irq channels were isolated. Though
getting them networked in a rack configuration would be a little
problematic. At the least you'd have to have a two-connector ISA
backplane for each card and use a simple ISA network card like one of
the old 3Com style 10/100s.
Or they could be used as fairly complex controllers provided you hooked
some D/A and control circuitry to the serial or parallel ports.
