Also: the more I think about the FW issue, the more I seem to recall that
it's not that they have to match.  The newer FW just has to be the "master,"
set via the hidden jumper panel.  The "master" node powers on the slave and 
does all the setup.

This is all really foggy.  I could be pretty wrong.

I know for sure that I had to spend some time experimenting with this, but
it was all a long time ago.  Things have worked so well since then that I 
have not been driven back to experimentation.
