Newbish Giant Boulder identity questions...

I picked up a giant boulder frameset (no suspension/feels heavy enough to be true steel) with derailers/shifters(SIS Indexed), brakes,sakae triple crankset, pretty much everything and in fair shape other then the no wheels part. So, how do I narrow it down? Good site for info etc? Or does someone just know the answer? it's a 20" with oversized mountain bike tubes it says.
Pictures as follows:

I can't see the pic from here but my guess is a '95. Bikepedia is a good source for ID info:

I've sorted through all the base model Boulder's on there with no match I am how ever looking at all the others, but it only let's me go back as far as 96...

Edit: You were right it does indeed appear to be 1995 giant boulder, it was called a "giant boulder 26" though, so it wasn't listed in the direct section.. a minor search and bammo. Thanks a lot! Now all this puppy needs is some wheels.

Here' a '98 I just bought for $35, not that it's particularly relevant to this old thread.
Like new. She just wanted to get rid of her exe's bike. It's heavy, Chromo seat tube
only, but pretty fair components for a mid-range bike. I think I'll upgrade with some
vintage parts. Too bad the Rock Shox won't convert to 29ers. Still a lot of bike for $35
Not stolen, I got all the original paper work too.
