Well, 4.0 didn't panic.

That brings me to another point, for some reason, when I attempted to
upgrade the SRM, it appeared as if it wrote the firmmware successfully,
there were no errors, it went through the process, *but* when I checked
the version of SRM, it was still the same.

I really haven't messed with it at all lately because I'm waiting for a
proper serial cable so that I can plug the Multia's serial port up to one
of my linux boxen.  D25M to D9M, quite possibly the most difficult cable
to assemble.  I had 2 dozen various 9<->25 pin adapters, and I couldn't
combine any of them with a D9M-D9F cable in any way to come out with a
D25M<->D9M cable.

I've only seen this particular problem with 4.1.1 (I don't think I've
tried 4.1 yet, although I can't remember for sure).
