OK, that's the interface between the transputer serial links and the 
ISA bus. A transputer can be set up to boot from a link, that is
to download software over a link after reset. So the PC can 
provide all the software for the transputer.

Do you mean that only 4 pins in the socket (on the end of the cable) are
wired, or that there are only 4 traces on the PCB going to the header. If 
the latter then I have no idea why, if the former then I would guess all
the transputer links, etc, are on that header and that one of them is
brought out to the 5 pin socket on the bracket.
