   Well actually he was going to work on SysKonnect drivers, since their 
info is readily available, they're still making the cards, and they 
have very modern (i.e. 64bit/66MHz) PCI cards.

   I will try to lean on him about it, but it's not likely to help.  
Leaning on someone won't increase the number of hours in the day...my 
boss' beliefs notwithstanding.

   I can do that.
