Thanks for the tips.
You have reminded me that I have two, nearly identical machines, and I
should move the
SCSI over to my performa to see if I have the same problems: on that machine
I run a spare OS7.1 and it might be interesting to see if it acts up.
The LC runs 8.1.bloat.
Other ideas and suggestions are encouraged. I am new to the geek world.
