*Excellent*  The 350 is one of the two hp300 models that have an HP MMU.
The other is the 320.  I don't know of many people running on these systems
these days, so I'm always unsure if some small snippet of code for them
is busted :-)

Glad that it's working for you!

On that note, I hope you'll be monitoring the list, because sometime soon
I'd like to make some changes to the pmap module to make these machines
a little less slow :-)

And, yes, 7937 are f*!@#@#$ing heavy :-)

I don't have any extras, but the catseye is a nice display; I use one on
my hp380 (which I'm going to FINALLY be able to hook back up this weekend;
it's been off ever since I moved up the peninsula to San Francisco, and
I had to allocate a few cubic feet to set it up in, and couldn't do *that*
until very recently :-)
