Digital Server 3000 FR-K7F4 AB now what?

I aquired the above from a friend and I have not fired it up yet but I have several questions:

1. is it worth fiddling with?
2. if I sold it, what could I get?
3. is any software available for it?
4. it supposidly boots to VMS, how do I get a hardware list? from the OS?
5. can I plug in pc clone ps/2 keyboards and mice and vga monitors to get it to boot up?

any other suggestions would be appreciated,
charles......

The DEC3000 series of ALphaServers did not support or run Windows NT.

The Keyboard and mouse connections on this series of AlphaServers did not use PS2 connections.

Both of these options ( ps2 and NT) came later in the ALphaServer life cyle
