Okay, I just scored from work some old gear that isn't in use. One of
the things in question is a SBC based around an NEC Vr5000. The back
of the board has the labels "Smart Modular Tech" and "PCB Jupiter Rev
01". In addition to the CPU, it's got a Dallas Semiconductor RTC,
several Zilog and Altera chips, 2 COM + 1 Parallel Port, Ethernet,
SCSI, a few 72 pin SIMM sockets, and a PCI slot. The ethernet chip is
an Intel 82596DX-25. The SCSI is driven by an LSI 53C810A. 

The obvious question then is, does this board already run linux? I
haven't been able to find any documentation on it yet, so if the
answer is "No", but somebody knows about this board, I'd look into
doing the porting work.
