That was _my_ original objection to it.  Contacting somebody personally 
or maybe posting to a PC-mods list somewhere would have been correct but 
this list is about _keeping_ older hardware.  Not cannibalizing it.  It 
might have been acceptable on the Geeks at sunhelp list but I don't think 
it belongs here.
