Anyways... havn't seen you on the MUSH in awhile, but...

	A fair upgrade from what I remember.

	I don't think that this is bad.  Several of our suns with
SunOS and Solaris do this.  Basically, SCSI has 'addresses' (ID) and
units (LUN).  Each address has 8 LUNs.  Some systems (like my
ESDI<-->SCSI converter) will take two drives, and produce on address
with two LUNs (this is the proper behaviour).  Other drives
(esp. those produced for a DOS market with broken controllers) respond
for every LUN --- that is the produce the same response for each of
their 8 LUNs.

	The moral of the story is... you better only use one of those
devices, but it's not really broken.

	I would be happy to run an AmigaDOS compiler across something
for you.  I have DICE, SAS/C, GCC and MANX/C :).  Just catch me on the
MUSH when I'm at home.
