ofppc.  Prep runs on the model 140, but not the 150 because it's a CHRP machine.

I do, but I won't have time to look at it for a little while.  I also know that
someone else may currently be working on it, and might have some images you
could try out.  He is on this list, so I will let him speak for himself if he
wants to.

The 150 is on my list of machines to port to, it's just a matter of getting
through the other ones first.  It's definately worth holding onto, as we will
run on it eventually.
