   It boots and runs!!!!

    I've spent most of today installing (through trial and error) Hard
Hat on the the Tandem.  And It looks like I have been successful!

Check it out:

    The installation process certainly wasn't what I would call smooth,
but it was worth it.

    Thanks to everyone who provided me hints on identifying this
machine.  I have never had access to an Indy/Indigo/Challenge S before,
so identifying this machine on my own would have been a total guess
without the resources of this list and its archive.

    Now the fun begins.

    Thanks again.
