The DECsystem 5100 is about 8" tall and the footprint is about the same as
a desktop PC. I can give you exact dimensions tonight after I measure the
one I have at home!
I'd be very interested in trying out the current MIPS stuff on mine -- I got
as far as getting to "can't mount root device" if I remember correctly a
couple years ago, but my involvement since then has been limited to just
reading an occasional message on the mailing list(s). The major stumbling
block I think was the memory sizing routine -- I ended up hardcoding my
memory size and recompiling a custom kernel to get that far.
Is there somewhere I can go for a summary of where everything stands today,
and what I need to grab to give it another whirl?
