Ouch... this is good to know.  I was under the impression that the  
machine was good to go all by itself and was thinking of replacing my  
B80 with one of those from the basement at work (retired systems).  I  
was all set to grab one Monday.  I was hoping to just run it and an  
SSA shelf.  So I'd need 8U (two boxes) to do that?

Ahh ok I'll just swipe any SSA cards I find and the shelf + cables  
and use my B80.
