Well, this is an interesting question, given that `DEC' hardware
is no longer available. If you put certain Quantum drives in it,
those would be DEC hardware with a different name, as DEC sold
their disk division to Quantum a few years ago. On the other hand,
you could put Compaq hardware in it, but that would really most
likely be non-DEC hardware with a different name as Compaq doesn't
make disk drives. It's all so confusing, isn't it? :-)
