How far back will the mac client go? 68030? 68020? 68000?

I could probably rig up a demo of a mac II running deschall. It would take
a little work, but there's even a mac plus or two floating around the
place. I could roust a 1200 baud modem and I'm in business.

Of course, it might take a couple of days for it to get through the first
key block. :-)
