They're drives.  I have a 9121 (that collects dust very well) that's a 
dual 3.5" floppy with a GPIB/HPIB interface.  Don't get too excited, the
3.5" drives only do about 180K or something like that.  Nowhere's near
the 1.44M in the PC's.  I think the 9122 has either one or no floppies 
and a hard disk and the 9123 maybe both.  We have either the 22 or 23
at work.  In any event for $2.50 they're be great if you have a boat.
