Late to this party, have been ignoring email for several weeks,  
trying to work on some non-computer stuff.

I'm not 100% certain, but I thought OWC had this for sale on their  
web site (since they were pushing XpostFacto so much early on).

I have a lot of older Mac software, none of which is catalogued at

know which versions of FWB HDT included it?
