The DECstation 5000/240 is a MIPS architecture machine from Digital Equipment Corporation. It is an odd machine internally because it has a huge number of memory slots, but nowhere to install an internal disk, so external disk units are required. This particular machine came with a TURBOchannel extender, which has room for some disks as well. I don’t have the TURBOchannel Extender interface cable though (P/N 17-03335-01), so if anyone has one, then let me know.
I have a storage expansion box with two disks in it. One has Ultrix 4.5 installed, which recognises the frame buffer and runs on the monitor. The other disk has NetBSD 1.5.3 installed, which does not recognise the frame buffer, and so only runs on the serial console.
