photos:Inside of the 4D/380 Predator rack

Some photos of my newly acquired SGI 4D/380 VGX Predator rack. They were mostly taken to help my put the thing back together when I'm done verifying the functional status of it's boards. The Predator has 8 33MHz R3000 CPU's, a 10span VGX graphics pipe, a VideoLab option for professional digital video I/O, FDDI (100Mb/s fibre) and a dual channel IPI adapter.
