Unless you have a Klein secret decoder ring, that serial number is pretty meaningless. Date the bike by looking up the component codes at the vintage Trek site, pretty much every part on that bike will have them.
Also go to bikepedia, they have anything 1993 or newer. They often do not have pictures, so you have to ID a bike there by component level and color.
Full size pics (use a hosting site like Flickr) would also assist. If you are planning to sell that bike, I would change out that stem immediately.
