Can anyone help finish my Workgroup Server 95?

    Hi!

    I can't post in marketplace. Darn.

    Anyway, I've got a rather mad collection of Macs, and my main 'glue' for the system is an Apple Workgroup Server 95 which will eventually be running A/UX, but for the time being trots along on 7.6.

    It is a genuine AWS, but the previous owner gutted it.

    So I'm looking for a Pisces card (SCSI, L2 Cache), a 5-drive cage, a CD-ROM drive Bezel, and cables. I'm also looking for more 16Mb 30-pin SIMM modules for it.

    Shreve had them, but they've sold out - and they were complete machines :(

    I'm based in the UK, but I'm happy to pay shipping on components. A whole machine for spares would be a bit OTT ;)

    Do you actually have A/UX? Do you have any experience with it?

    I have always wondered about it. People say it was one of the greatest OSes ever, NASA used to use it I believe.

    Good luck.... I remember when the Workgroup Server line came out- back in 1993 :)


    Do you know how to install A/UX??

    I've installed A/UX before, on my Q700 - ran it dual head with 2 14" monitors, but didn't really get much into it. It seemed to work fine, but until I have my AWS 95 running right, I don't think I'll get a proper idea of it. I've only got 148Mb RAM, too - aiming for 256.

    I've got 3.1 I think. Somewhere. I'll have to find what I did with the CDs now!

    On another note.

    I see you have a Dell Precision 410.

    If its a doorstop, wanna sell the hard disks and RAM it has to me? :)

    Or trade.

    I wish this took 72-pin SIMMs, then'd you'd be in business. Will look for some 16 MB pieces of 30 pin when I go to my PC User Group on Thursday

    Hi,
    I've got 2 Macintosh Quadra 950's, and two Apple Workgroup Server 9150/120 Computers, so if you do need some parts I know some from each are swappable, please PM me if you would like to get more info.

    Thank You!

    I think the drive cage from the 9150 would fit; does it have a 5-drive cage in the upper bay behind the upper bays? And presumably the CD-ROM drive bezel.

    The design of the case is slightly different, so maybe the internals are different.

    Presumably the 9150 doesn't have the Pisces PDS card with SCSI/L2 Cache for the 040.

    It's a functional 410, upgraded to dual PIII-450s - but the RAM isn't anything special! Just 168-pin DIMMs, and only 256Mb installed at the moment after one went bad.

    I wish the AWS took 72 pin as well; I have plenty (and most of it, too large to use - 8Mb is too big for my NeXT Color as it is an early one).
