Vintage Apple DOS Compatibility Card (486/66 for Power Macintosh 6100) working
This card goes into the PDS slot of a Power Macintosh 6100 and allows you to run DOS software using the on-board 486/66 MHz processor. Essentially this converts a regular Power Macintosh 6100 to the DOS Compatible variant: see this LGR video. Typically this card came with a (now extremely hard to find) cable which acts as a pass through to switch the monitor between the Macintosh video and the DOS card video. Note that this card includes the Soundblaster Vibra 16 addon board (see photo 5 for detail) so you will have sound support in DOS (assuming you connect the sound out 4 pin-header to the CD-ROM 4 pin input on the 6100 motherboard). You will need to use 2, 4-pin CD-ROM audio jumper cables to do this.

These are still commonly available. No software is included, but the relevant support files can be readily downloaded from Macintosh Repository. No RAM is included, but the card takes the same 72-pin SIMMs as the Power Macintosh 6100 (up to 32 MB).

Alternatively the Macintosh memory may be shared, at the cost of a performance penalty. The item "Vintage Apple DOS Compatibility Card (486/66 for Power Macintosh 6100) working" is in sale since Thursday, December 2, 2021.
