Mine has a Starlan 10 adapter in it, which is apparently close enough to
twisted-pair Ethernet that it can be bridged with one of AT&T's Starlan
hubs, which is how I have it wired to my network. I'll see if I can dump
the ROMs, but they're not socketed so it'll take a bit of surgery. I also
have the ISDN adapter, which has socketed EPROMs.
Also my 730X cart is newer -- it's the 730+ X Cartridge, Issue 1.2 (c)
1991. I'll get those dumped too, hopefully this weekend.
