I've has *that* fun already! I think it was easier for me since I had 
set up an install server for HP-UX 10.20. I think some of the server 
setup was similar. So, it boots, and I can change hosts pretty easily. I 
have had it connecting to a couple of HP boxes, a Linx box and a couple 
of Suns. It's a really convenient way to get graphics on a headless box.

What I really wonder now is how I get the original settings back if I 
find this one doesn't work. Ah, well. Time to be brave... Here goes.

Hey, it works! WooHoo! Thank you Shel!
