I rescued some kind of NCD thing ... Lemme see ... It's a "Model NCD 88k".
The sticker on the bottom has "2.6.0" on, though, so it might be that.

I got it with my SGI Challenge L, but I haven't even tried to fire up the NCD.
I'll be happy to do so, and check the date and version of the ROM if you'd
like.  I got a monitor with it, but no keyboard or mouse.  

A question for you ... The keyboard socket looks PS/2-ish ... Will a PS/2
keyborad work?  And the mouse port is a male DB-9, so will an old PC serial
mouse work?
