I do suck, and thanks for recognizing it. :) Dave McGuire had the same
response when I told him what I was getting.

SE/HMC interface looks the same as my G3's interface. There's still
everything there for making activation profiles, doing IOCP stuff, etc.
When I shoved in some CHA's and other cards, in place of the coupling
facility link cards, it detected some of that as well (I think that I
need more CHA's, or CHA's in the right slots to make it recognize all
of the I/O boards). I might spend some time working on that tonight
For sure, I'll report what I figure out.
