just as a question - how would the drive's SCSI id affect this?
does it show up as that digit on the end of the device name?
what should i look for WRT that?

i can't help you there... and with the experiences i've had lately
with the dealer, they couldn't either.

> 4MB. Is very small.

i finally convinced them to get me 8 MB more, so i hope to have
12 MB by the end of the week.  i knew i'd need it, to do this Tcl/Tk

now, why does INSTALL say 4 MB is enough if it isn't?
or does it mean it has to say "avail mem = (more than 4 MB)"
when booting?

ahh... where do i get those?

PS: nevermind, i think i found one at regensburg.  i don't have
gunzip though, that'll make things tricky.
