Your description is not much help. A picture would be helpful. Description sounds like a header. there are usually many headers on a board. Could be jumper pins too.

Unfortunately your photo is not clear enough. Also, there are many components on the right edge. There appears to be something metallic next to the last PCI slot.

The actual model number may be between the card slots in larger characters, or near the middle of the mboard, or it or the acer (or AOpen) part number may be on the label on the parallel port.
If the mboard boots, the model can often be determined by using the bios string at the bottom of the first screen as you boot the computer to search with on the web, without the date if it has a date at the beginning of it.

"was wondering what the male socet is for on the base

You're going to have to be more specific about where it is on the mboard, and alot larger , clear picture would be better.

Provide a better picture. From what I can see it looks like nothing more than wide traces without a socket attached. You describe a male socket. Use a real camera and take a close up photo.

If the board is really 1996 vintage that area is where an ISA socket would reside. Sometimes a manufacturer will leave off some components but the design called for them so you can see a outline of where the component would go.

It is for a baby board. It is a small extension for more pci slots. A lot of dell boards had the male plug. So instead of 3 pci slots you can have 5.

The board could be used in both types of towers..short or tall.

The board will work without the extension. Just be sure it does not touch the bottom of the case.
