Yeah, and you could actually become root by booting the system from a Unix
I think the floopy drives were able to read an ancient PC-DOS format too.
The better way to go is probably the ethernet though. That was when you still
needed tranceivers.

Some version of Unix, I remember a student regularly loosing her image
because she wasn't told to properly shutdown the system and just turned it
off before the saved image was actually on the hard disc.

I loved working on these, we had a 1600x1200 grayscale machine, lots of room
for all these browsers ;-)
