Well, if I can get my ^&*#$#%^@#$%^(* NFS setup set up, I'll clean up a bug
or two in the SGEC code, and that would be a good starting point for those
two machines as well, both of which use the same thing (I suspect...does
SHOW DEV at the >>> prompt call the Ethernet adapter an EZA0?)

Actually, since I just got an Alpha (even if it is a lowly 4/166), once I
get an OS installed on it, I can then use my Pentium to check out NFS on it
(and vice versa), and that will take out a large chunk of uncertainty in my
test setup.
