Some useful information for Apollo workstation owners running Domain Aegis.



In 1990, I had the opportunity to deliver four Apollo workstations to a customer who had very little experience of any kind with workstations, UNIX machines, or PC's. To help them with some basics I wrote a Survival Guide which described how to setup the initial shipment and how to perform some basic functions. As the Apollo workstations exit the commercial market and end up in the homes of hobbyists and students the need for cheap technical information is going up at a time when the industry is forgetting all about the Apollo's. For experienced Apollo users the information here will be old news. For the unexperienced the information may be of great value!

WARNING: Please resist the urge to email me and ask me Apollo questions. I will probably *IGNORE* requests for free advice unless I get multiple requests from different people, know the answer, and have the time to add it here for all to use. No one pays me anymore to answer Apollo questions and I didn't spend 6 years acquiring knowledge in order to give it away for free in my valuable spare time! Sorry I have to be such a grouch, but I've learned from experience that answering one question leads to two new people with two more questions, etc.
