Yes. In fact I am amazed that it is still intact and in place. It may
already have been removed. IIRC, it contains some sort of a broken, never
was supported by anybody, autobooting vid-text terminal program. IIRC that
is, please understand its been 2+ decades and many many such case openings
for mine. Mine no longer has the little tin can power convertor either as it
smoked itself at least 15 years ago, so mine is rewired and must live in an
MPI for power purposes. It also has the piggy backed kit which I use for a
serial mouse now. Sweet. I also used it for a 2nd midi port with ultimuse
for a while, but ultimuse never grew a recording function, so the mouse won.
