    I'm looking for 'nix to run on MCA. There's a few of them, don't need a
    list. Slowly flailing around, looking for install files and patches as
    needed.

    Version 1.5 does list PC, AT, and PS/2. BUT is that 8525, 8530, 8535,
    and 8540 (ISA) -OR- does that include MCA?

    Read where 1.7.0 worked on MCA, just which system, I'm not sure...

    Methinks ST506, maybe ESDI on PS/2 MCA, and that's it.
