I have the machine hooked up to my KVM switch.

There is a floor stand available which I don't have :(
Fortunately the enclosure is wide enough that's it not really necessary :)

The FastWide scsi channel is High Voltage Differential which sucks since disks are rare and old.
HVD is a dead technology for disks :(

A lot of information about PA-RISC based machines are available at
