NetWare machine

NetWare machineThis baby is my NetWare 3 server. It appears to be a pretty cool black custom built rackmountable PC built around an IBM 286, with some interesting-looking Cisco cards in it.

Okay, so it doesn't get used much, in fact as IBM couldn't supply me with any info on it (I needed a product ID, which seeing as it is very much not a current product would be a bit tricky) it hasn't been switched on since before January 1st 2000 - I'd installed some Y2K patches but didn't know if it would go arse-over. I bought it as a "secondhand network hub" from some dodgy local computer store, and still haven't been able to get the hub part working; I did spend some time learning about NetWare, installing Y2K and TCP/IP upgrades and the like, but with a 286 and a 100MB hard drive (split 90MB NW, 10MB DOS) it's not even worth trying to get something more standard running on it. It was fun for a while though, and now makes a rather interesting coffee table/computer stand.
