e's could be configured with either DIO or SGC busses, and you got 
exactly one slot of whichever you chose.  If you 425e has a DIO bus, you 
probably will win.  Sure it's an e?  They were a desktop that looked a 
lot like a 715.  The bootrom didn't support serial console, and some of 
them had a floppy drive.
