I am posting this for the view of others like you....
Here at ESIX Tech Support we have had a few problems with Micronics 25 and
33. A few things you should know.... You NEED the phonex BIOS 10.10!
You also need 100ns ram or faster sometimes they get shiped with slow
memory. People have also had booting problems when the motherboard has
a switch moved to enable shadowing of the vidio bios. As long as you
know this you should be ok with most Unixes. With these things in mind
ESIX SYSV3.2 Rev C works fine.

does not seem to work too well in the 33 mhz computers. The Adaptec should
work fine.
