Hi Rescue-ers!

I am trying to rescue an Ultra 2 that seems to have a dead motherboard.  I have
tested with a different power supply, cpu's, memory etc. and still I get no
output on the serial port. So I think it's the motherboard, since I have
followed the troubleshooting procedure in the hardware manual for that system.
I am aware of the jumper for CPU/Bus clock, and have tried it in both positions.
No Joy.

So, does anyone have a Ultra 2 that they have sacrificed for CPUs, memory,
powersupply laying around?

I would get one from epay^h^h^hbay, but they are getting a little scarce on
there. Ultra-2's are really expensive to ship since the chasis is so heavy.

The only gotcha is, I'm in Canada (near Toronto), but I would be happy to make
it worth your time to pitch the motherboard in a box and send it to me....  

If there is any rescue'ers in the southwest ontario area, I would pick up.
