Subject: DECstation 5000/240

Hi, I am a researcher in England with a DECstation 5000/240 which I 
no longer require.  I'm contacting you because I see that you are 
involved with porting Linux to DEC computers and thought that it 
may be useful, rather than me dispose of it elsewhere (probably in a 
rubbish bin of sorts).

The computer has 24Mb RAM, a 1.3 Gb SCSI disk, a tape unit but no 
monitor.  I must confess that I haven't used it for many months, 
but it worked okay when last used.

If there is anyone you know who may be interested in this computer 
then they can have it at no charge if they are prepared to collect 
it from me.  Obviously, this is only really feasible for someone in 
England too.

The box said "Requires Windows 95 or better."
I can't understand why it won't work on my Linux computer.
