Right now this project is kind of stuck anyway. I can't get my hands on
a Field Engineering handbook (a'la Sun) so I don't have any idea where,
or in which order to put the cards in the cardcage. (Since I have never
ran a 4/400 even once)

I have all the hardware just sitting here, but I need more info. :-)
