It should.   The challenge/S is a indy with the following changes.

.       Pull the graphics card out of it.
.       Put an IOplus card where the graphics card goes.
        An ioplus has two WD33C95A controlers on it and a 2nd eithernet
        that is the same type as the onboard ec0 but is IDed as ec3.
.       Put diffrent sheetmetal on the back of the box so the connectors on
        the IOplus line up with holes.
