I want to apologize to all the people in the mailing list, and expecially =
to Mr Jochen 
Kunz, but in my previous posting I made a mistake:

My RS6000 system is NOT a 43/100, but a Model 7011-250
PPC 601 @ 66/80 MHz
L1 cache 32KB
1MCA Bus 80 Mhz.

So, I think I'm out of luck.

I'm sorry,

Ciao, Ric
