Newest acquisition for the collection. A 10 ISA slot(!) 286 AT clone from Radio Shack. :o I can't even begin to imagine filling up 10 ISA slots. Apart from the obvious sound and video cards and maybe a modem card, what else is there that would cause you to fill all 10 slots? :?:

You definitely need an Ethernet card; any PC benefits from not having to use "sneakernet."

10 slots .. what a beast!

I found out you can run Xenix on these machines and connect multiple terminals to make a multiuser network so I am now guessing that is why there are so many slots. The terminals probably connect via ISA cards.
