Whilst I have some p500 systems that I am not using with both pci and ISA. I certainly have no care for ISA. However, I would be glad if the 486 support was kept as I have many 486 systems that I would like to be able to use if I ever get around to porting the ethernet driver (which is open source). -- _______________________________________________________________________ 'Write programs that do one thing and do it well.
