i will try... currently i've just also had some weirdness come up and am having 
random reboots... but i lost a power supply the other day and it is possible 
that this used replacement one is not fully up to snuff and causing problems... 
i have to dig and see if i can find another one [sigh]... if it isn't one thing, 
it is another :?

i don't know if it is worth it but it may be desirable to build a table of 
machines with their necessary specifics to get an idea of what is really going 
on... i'm going to try my tests again in a bit after unloading everything and 
having the machine run only in its sunsuit ;)
