That's good to hear.  I'm not sure how much memory is on this machine
right now.  I don't even have a disk for it, but am pretty sure that I
can use a regular old ST-506-1, right?  Also, is there an easy way for
me to tell how much memory is there?  Also, I was thinking of using it
for either a KDC for our kerberos realm, or as a SLIP gateway for my
network.  Any problems with these two tasks?
