Well, I also had once a 1850 as monitoring server, and well, I got the
newer version with P III-500 CPU, not the old one with PII-CPUs.

Was no big joy, I suspect that there are some things lurking around
regarding Compaqs special treatment of register mapping et al.

I had mine running then with 4.8, and well, it worked...

Just my 0.02 Eurocent....
