    I did find a photo of the Channel Emulation card--it's clearly for MCA, however:

    I believe that IBM made at least two types of Channel Adaptor. Card a "S/370 Channel Card"

    and an "S/390 Channel Adaptor"

    I am not sure that the Channel Cards support DASD, but you might want to give it a try!.

    BUSTECH also made channel cards.....

    looking here :-

    It sayes

    You cannot use a Micro-Channel P/390 with the PCI S/390 Parallel Channel Adapter. The "bridge" chips used in combo systems don't support busmaster transfers between adapters of different bus types.

    so PCI channel adaptors must exist...
    .. but I don't have either sort in by box of adaptors....

    Pic of my P390 attached...

    All right, thanks for the info everybody. It's definitely got the special monitor and keyboard with it. I'm not sure bas d on the limited photos if the AT is the 3270 variety, but there's only one monitor. There are also three unseen keyboards. The three pictured are an XT Model F, an AT Model F and a Model F-122. I'll get to see everything in person on Sunday. Somewhere I have a copy of the 3270 emulation software in the box, which I picked up at the flea market. This will be interesting

    So, the haul was not as wonderful as I was lead to believe, but still worth the 250 mile round trip and the $250 I paid. Here's what I got with photos to come soon:
    A 5150 64/256 model with one original floppy drive and no cards
    A 5170 case with power supply and nothing else
    A 3178C terminal
    A 3179G terminal with Model M 122 key keyboard
    Two Model M 1390120 keyboards (silver IBM square emblem)
    Two PC AT model F keyboards (one labeled for 1-2-3)
    A Wyse terminal keyboard
    An IBM 3299 terminal hub
    An Irma board in box
    A sealed copy of WordPerfect 5.1
    A sealed copy of Lotus 1-2-3 release 2.2
    Lotus 1-2-3 release 2.0
    Lotus 1-2-3 release 1A
    WordPerfect 5.2 for Windows
    IBM Professional Office System "Getting Started" manual.

    Overall a decent deal. Stuff to play with or possibly go towards a new transmission!

    I have an ISC/390 here that I can use; here are pics of the PCI cardset, including the PCI P/390, two Artic960 PCI channel adapters, one of which is fiber-attached (ESCON: see pics in the article at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ESCON to verify the connector), and PCI DASD RAID controller.

    The connector on the Bus and Tag channel card looks very like that on the MP3000 we had at work. I guess its a very similar setup to the ISC....
