Looking at the information that I have at hand on the Mips models I cannot
see any reference for a RC3260. A quick grep thru the include files
shipped with RISC/os doesn't produce any hits either. The model isn't
mentioned in the OS install notes either so there is a chance the model
number isn't correct.
The model naming conventions are rather inconsistent, but there is a
chance it could be one of the following:
RC3240 (Similar to M/120 machine) R2000 16MHz
RC6260 R6000 Mips II ECL CPU
RC3360 R3000 33MHz / VME Bus
If it's the RC3360 then it will be similar to the RC3350 machine I plan
on starting a port for early next year. Quite a bit of work is required
since it is VME Bus based.
I have the technical information on the M/120 and 3240 server but no

The machine should have been delivered with a technical reference manual
which will give you a detailed description on memory maps, programming
DMA, byte lane restrictions, interrupts etc.
If you can pick the machine up for a low cost along with the manual
you will have a fun project on your hands!!
