The prom is sometimes misleading. It said my Indy R5 180 was something 
else when I first booted it. Scared me half to death, but sanity 
prevails in IRIX.

Yeah. It's a pitty you can do the 128MB SIMM trick like you can with the 
R10K based I2.

On the subject of your R4400 at 250, do you get a timeout/buz when left 
playing tunes (mp3 or CDs) ?

I do on my Impact, and have a page setup which describes my solution. 
I'm just interested to know if you get it on an Teal I2.
