Ralf probably knows better than I, but you may try and get the information
out of NEC. The only thing of relevance I can find is a part number for
the "Service and Reference Manual" (819-181259-000). Although it probably
would not be enough to get anything started. You can also get a lot of
information from just identifying the major ICs on the motherboard (unless
they all happen to be custom chips).
