Yes - in the nekochan threads referenced in that post, there's mention
of a
bad midplane at one time. Didn't really follow if it's been
repaired since
then or not.

That's my
old machine! I donated it back in 2004, I think.

Unless they've replaced the
midplane, it is not in running condition. I
bought it from a university in
Oklahoma, and they didn't reinstall the
locking bar on the rear card cage, and
they shipped it on its back, so
heavy 4xR10k CPU boards hopped up and down in
their slots all the way
I-35. :(
