Indeed. I installed a 5.25" drive in my 5x86 160 (133MHz CPU uplcocked to
160MHz, with 40MHz VLB bus) to write out physical media for my TRS-80 Model
4. Works great. I mainly use the system for enjoying early-90s scenedemos.
(I have a Tseng ET-4000/W32p VLB gfx card that I've expanded to 2MB
interleaved RAM -- fastest DOS chipset available, great for games and
demos.)

The machine being offered sounds like a nice one. Love those 5x86 units.
