Anybody know what a DEC H9642 enclosure looks like or

NetBSD hardware reference says its two BA23s... but I need to know if
I can fit it into the back of a Kia Sportage. Pictures, anyone?
If I'm not mistaken you mean the H9644 chassis. Look here:
<http://www.home.mcmanis.com/vaxes.html> and see that brute in the back?
Yup that is a H9644 with a MicroVAX 3800 in it. You're probably looking at
dual BA23's, and two RA80s.
It will not fit "in" a Kia Sportage, however you could probably *make* a
Kia Sportage out of its metal pieces :-) System weight is in the
neighborhood of 500 to 600 lbs. Fortunately you can de-rack it and get that
into 200 lb pieces. (RA81s)
Given that, anybody want one (its a MicroVAX II) in the
Free, you just have to come pick it up. I'm being
given this as a "gotta
take this too" in addition to a PDP 11/53... and I dont have room for it
in the garage, nor do I have time to mess with it right now...
Sigh, its too bad that these systems will end up stranded. Strangely, if
there were a SCSI interface in it there would be people clamoring for it
:-) Its all in how you look at it. I discovered that you can answer "yes"
to all offers to give you stuff, then start up a incoming stream and
produce a fairly complete/nice collection out of it.
