I'm almost done with moving, so I'm catching up with everything. Mostly 
I dont have high speed internet, so that is still a problem.

Anyway, back to the K580, it has 4 gig of ram, 6 cpus, 8200s @ 240MHz 
(the max speed and number of cpus), expansion i/o with dual 100mbit, 
scsi (tape) and two fiber channel cards to a 2405, just added gigabit 
1000sx on core i/o opt slot, and then scsi diff on each hp-pb to a 
storage enclosure (and a scsi SE and MUX filling the last two slots on 
the hp-pbs). It was on it's way to being decommisioned (I have space for 
it!), but I had to extend it's life by a year, hence the gigabit. The 
app that is running on it was to move to a Sun box (4800) but we ran 
into many issues, not counting the fact that we still have some DTCs 
connected to it.
