I have done a little more investigation. To pass diagnostics the machine needs
Ethernet connected. Do you have a MAU/AUI to 10 base-t transceiver? I
can bring one.

There were three operating enviornments for it. Do you know what was installed
on it and usernames/passwords? Do you know what you want to run in the 
museum? Keep it as last used if possible or did you desire something in 
particular? I got copies for my emulator of Viewpoint, XDE 5.0, and the 
Koto release of Interlisp-D for use in testing.

Are their more people who are planning to work on it? I've played slightly
with the DarkStar emulator to have some feel for it but have never
seen one in person.
