The first PS/2 cards look like Token Ring nics. They probably have a
blue 16/4 sticker on the faceplate.

The big EISA card is a remote access card, the port on the back is a
modem. You dial into it and it gives you a remote console, and you can
power cycle the machine, etc.

I don't know what the 2 MCA cards with RAM on them do.
