	Well, it's better than the 64MB in my 3000/400... Anybody got any
extra RAM for this? Please? :) Actually, D/UX 3.2C isn't too bad at all
with that much RAM.
	Now to take this baby home and scare up a second HDD for it, so I
can slap 1.6 on. Then I'll have it dual boot NetBSD and D/UX...

	And just for comparison, my 3000/400 is definitely quieter than my
Prioris HX 5150 MP/2, and quite a few PCs too. Then again, the Prioris
does have 3 Barracuda 4 drives, and 4 other SCSI drives in it...
