[rc5] Cubix 3001 processor board

     I have more than enough NetWare 3.12 licenses lying around.  I'd be 
     willing to set this up running the NetWare client.  There's no point 
     in trying to set up Win3.x as there is (still) no client for it.

Well, if the cards are just lying around doing nothing, would you be 
prepared to let anyone else try to get them to work? If people are talking 
about programming FPGA chips and designing PCI boards to boost their 
keyrates, there must be _someone_ out there who'll spend a weekend to gain 
another 1/2 GKey/s (heck, it's more than 3 times what my box is doing).
     
I'd offer myself, but (1) I don't know anything about Novell networks or 
diskless processor boards and <2> I'm in England and judging by the 
emails' timezones, I'm guessing that you and Robert Brooks aren't :-)
     
Anyone out there in the right area who wants to try the challenge?
