It's from a Cray IO subsystem. There are 4 of these VME boards. Each has 
AUI cable to a AUI hub, and then there is a SCSI controller on each. Those 
controllers go to disks. One of them has FDDI as well.

It's my understanding they boot something like VxWorks and just handle IO.

I'm about to hook some random hard drives (about 1/4th of what it 
originally had) up and see if I can get the install scripts to install 
UNICOS onto it soon.
