I've had the box since about 86.  It was main home networking
box (when networking was UUCP :-).  I'm amazed that it actually
works considering it's been off for nearly 11 years.  

It looks like CSR space is 0x2000000 (beginning of I/O space)
which Q-bus memoray space start at 0 (not surprising since 
that's the main memory).

I'll need to get to Fry's to buy a UTP MAU and another small 
10-base-t repeater so I can hook it into a network.
