[rescue] Data General DG/UX box

DG/UX is a very plain and straight forward Sys V R4.0 port. Very easy to 
deal with if you have any Sys V experience. The connector is probably 
monochrome video - does the machine still say which model of Aviion it 
is? If it's a 500, it could be a fairly fun multiprocessor capable 
graphics workstation.

Enjoy, I always liked working with DG Aviions. They were solid, 
reliable, and faster than the clock would indicate. They still can be a 
good work group server - I ran an Ingres 6.4 installation for over 10 
years on one serving up to 20 users at a time. Only down times were due 
to a disk wearing out and a lightning strike that got to it through a 
improperly grounded wiring job done about 6 months before. Took out the 
parallel port so we simply put the laserjet on ethernet and carried on.

Live like you will never die, love like you've never been hurt, dance
like no-one is watching.
