Heh, well, the Cabletron ST-500 is, as far as I know, a DEC H4005 -- as you
know, DEC sold at least part of their small networks stuff to Cabletron at
some point. I don't actually have any H4000s on hand though! I missed out
on that big lot listing of them a few years ago, where the guy was selling
new complete kits for something silly like $10/ea.
