This CD, codenamed 'FRED', seems to be some internal version of A/UX. The Mac OS part is versioned as System 7.0.1

Architecture: 68k

This works with Shoebill, and looks like a beta or something of A/UX 3? uname -a reports it as 'Fred 3.0.1b1' (the shipped A/UX 3.0.1 is 'A/UX 3.0.1'). The Mac side does not load CommandShell by default, as A/UX 3.0.1 does, and it seems to be wedged to automatically log in root (or at least, I don't seem to be able to disable autologin).

It looks like it comes with AppleShare Server 3.1ish (not Pro!) and a beta version of Retrospect that displays a very dramatic dialog box when it starts up telling you to click cancel if you haven't signed an NDA with Dantz.
