Perfect! Thanks for your help IDing this. It seems there are several IBM
6094-030 out there on ePay, so I will hunt one.

I did some googling and found that there is:
IBM 6094-030 == SB 2003, according to you
IBM 6094-031 == ???, maybe 3003?
IBM 6094-051 == SB 4000, according to some web page found by google.

I'll se what I can get cheap, preferably a Wacom due to your advice.
Calcomps schould work as well as Wacom, at least input(7) says this. The
installation procedure is the same for Calcomp and Wacom. The only
difference is that there are some extra goodies available for Wacoms.

To be honest: I don't know what Iris Explorer is.
[diging through IRIX CDs]
[Uuups. Adobe Illustrator 3.0?]
I have a Iris Explorer CD dated from 1991. This may be a bit old.
Maybe I can use this on the Indigo with IRIX 4.0.5...
