Oops....  I think I assumed Indigo 2... yet you were discussing Indigo...

The Indigo R4K mainboard (HP2 ?) will take an Indigo 2 R4400SC150 processor
(although the standoffs/screws are a different thread, but they could also
be robbed from tne R4400SC150 Indigo 2 donor system).

BTW, anyone got an extra R4K Indigo mainboard (not Indigo 2).  I have an
R3K one here, and am contemplating a future upgrade if someone has a
mainboard available.

Also, anyone got any extra of the special SIMMS used in the R3K Indigo
systems ???
