Come to think of it, I have a Tadpole external battery pack (somewhere) that
uses C or D size Ni-Cads that holds about 5 AH.  This attaches to the 
SPARCbook after removing the rubber plugs at the rear corners.

Also, I emailed Tadpole support a few months ago about the disappearance 
of their public ftp site.  They replied that they were working on the 
site and that it would be back up "sometime".  They also offered to send 
me any files that I needed.  I had previously grabbed the files for the 
SB, N40 and P1x00 off the the site, but if Geoff is reloading his SB, he 
could contact Tadpole support for the necessary patches, or I can zip 
the patches and email them.
