Help with an old school robot

Hi guys.

I picked up this old iRobot ATRV-mini last week from an auction, its an awsome old machine.
I plan on getting it running but being 15 years old its hard to find info about it, I've managed to log on to its on board computer that runs redhat but thats about as far as I've got. I dont know much about linux but from the small amount of info I have I should be able to drive it through another computer over a network. Still working on that   
If anyone here knows about this old beast or had some info on it that would be much appreciated!

Heres some pics of it!

SA, Unclassified sticker.....

Did that come from DSTO or DMO?

Unfortunately I think you have gone too far in the past for much documentation. Although I think your right in saying your best bet is running an external PC and trying to control it through that.

Did find this but not sure if it would be much help

If he has "root" he could perhaps see what is going on at least.

see what's running (top)
or take a look in chkconfig for any interesting services
