Small correction: We have the Specs for the 5000/200, not for the 5000/1xx,

Btw., I took a look through my collection of useful code and found a
CD-ROM with the Sprite operating system on it. Sprite was developed in 
Berkeley by Prof. Ousterhout (the Tcl/Tk Ousterhout :-)) and stands under
the standard Berkeley copyright. Sprite has been ported to Sun 3/4 and
DS2100/3100 and DS5000 (/1xx and /200, if I'm not mistaken).

I'll try to seek out the files that may be interesting for DecStation Linux
porters and put them on our ftp server.

Hmmm, I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem ;)...
