This is a very kind offer, because without the boot image, these things 
are pretty much a doorstop.

Last time I used it - and it was in service regularly! - I copied the 
firmware on to a floppy disc, which is hanging off the back of it via a 
twist-tie.  Presumably it's still good.  If not, it's good to know someone 
else might have the image.

I never did get the color NCD box really running, mostly because fiddling 
with an xterm seemed silly when I bought a dozen old Dell laptops surplus 
and can just run X and Linux right on them.  =)
