If anyone is interested in this machine for using it as buildd or porter machine he/she can have it for free. The machine is at Bielefeld/Germany and can bee seen here: http://juergen.leibner.eu/downloads/computer/IMG_2932.JPG http://juergen.leibner.eu/downloads/computer/IMG_2931.JPG http://juergen.leibner.eu/downloads/computer/IMG_2930.JPG http://juergen.leibner.eu/downloads/computer/IMG_2929.JPG http://juergen.leibner.eu/downloads/computer/IMG_2928.JPG Some documentations are available too.
