That is indeed assuring. :)

My acquiring of this board was not in any of the standard ways, I'm afraid.
It was given to me by a friend and all I got was the board in a brown card-
board box, literally. So I have no documentation at all for it. The reason I
know it is a Motorola board is because it was printed on it. :)

That is assuring as well. Thank you once again.
