u die). +The information then is pretty much diagnostic only, to aid in fault location and faulty FRU location. This is all designed to feed into the Error Logging stuff that Dompaq (that's my new name for "'Digital', uh, I mean 'Compaq'") holds *very* proprietary (they don't even ship the source for this with their OS source CD). +Dompaq service techs are only interested in the output of this error logging tool.
