	If it's a 160, and there is about 1/4 of the board having a
regular array of chips, then this board has 4 meg of memory on it.

Peter> The one with nothing but chips is a memory card.

	Reasonable.  These have either 4 or 8 meg of memory.  A full
board of 256 k chips is 8 meg.  I have not looked at a 4 meg board

	May be only a tape driver.  There was a 'special' type of tape
interface at the time this machine was built.

Peter> The other one is beyond me entirely.

	This may be SCSI.  Is it in slot 6 (or is that 7)?  Open up
the front.  One of the VME connecters pokes through the backplane.
There may be a cable connected to this.  That would be a SCSI cable.
The Sun SCSI for these machines has no external connector.
