True.  I just like the hardware for aesthetic and historical reasons.  And =
I have it already, so no additional investment is required.

But that's a non sequitur.  I realize that the docs list the sgi_65 server =
as =22untested.=22  Well, I'm testing it.  And I've discovered a few =
things, but don't want to be presumptuous about my findings.  I would =
prefer to discuss them with others who have also tested and/or built the =
sgi_65 server side of things, then come up with some recommendations / bug =
reports / etc.  I would think that the afs community would want to make =
binary releases of current releases as functional as possible, and am =
happy to contribute to that end.
