Heh, cool that it still exists those machines :-) We got rid of ours ~10 
years ago.
If there are any takers, I think I can help with schematics and stuff, 
not everything of it is thrown away.

Historical note:  When I generated the NetBSD 1.2 release on a 11/780 it 
13 days.  11 days to compile the system and 2 days to gzip the tarballs :-)
Today it might close up to like 4 months to generate a release...
