Could be; I don't recall whom I got it from, and the records that could
tell me are not easily accessible where I am today.

Its MAC address is 08:00:20:72:6f:e5, if you still have records enough
for that to tell you anything useful.  (I routinely record my machines'
MACs, and *that* record *is* easily accessible today.)

As I recall, I ran it with an external disk until I got the SCSI<->IDE
adapter.  Having one or the other was pretty much necessary.

I also recall that the disk was in just about the least accessible
place in the machine.  By the time I could replace it, there wasn't
much disassembly remaining I hadn't done.
