I know 332 MHz doesn't sound right ... but I'm sure that's what it
says on the IBM nameplate on the front. I'll verify this tonight

Have you got specs and stuff on the -140 you could link to? Maybe this
would help.

This is my preference. I'd like to install woody on one drive so I can
boot it up and say "Look Linux runs, it's stable and useful" and then
have the other to install, boot, and otherwise help test the new

Unfortunately, I can't get _anything_ to install (I even tried a BSD,
but quickly realized I was in too deep there!). The unstable stuff I'm
trying now has gotten me the furthest along.
