1)	This beast needs 750 watts to run, hence the extra p/s.  Make sure 
the switch to the primary (larger) p/s is always on.  Use the switch on 
the secondary (or the keyboard) to turn the machine on.
2)	There is a screw on the back of the chassis which holds it in.
3)	A Quad will take any ultra-series slot-type CPU, excepting the 
440mHz CPU from the Netra T 1405 (167-480mHz).  See #4.
4)	ftp://ftp.tadpole.com/support/3200/Manuals/Tadpole3200_hires.pdf

Cycle tech support is _excellent_.  My quad had a bad pci riser when I 
got it, and they replaced it for free.  I have bugged their support 
with a variety of inane questions, and they have always been excellent.

Feel free to contact me directly if you have any other questions.  I 
have figured out quite a number of things about this (very cool) E450 

BTW, does anyone have some 400mHz (or faster) cpu's that they are 
looking to sell/trade?  I'd like to replace the 4x300 that I currently
