   Based on those two replies, I think I have about the same load in the
old full rack as the new one without the V40z, so I will look elsewhere
for available capacity.

   Thanks to all to helped me avoid a st00pid mistake.

P.S. That A=W/V equation looks familiar. I just wish I could remember
that kind of stuff. :7( Mind you, for some reason, I haven't been able
to get PV=nRT out of my head since tenth grade, though I'm hazy on what
use it is to me now that I don't measure anything in moles or
atmospheres anymore...
