Uhm. FYI, Warp5 *DOES* boot on VXpro, thank you muchly. I used my screwed
up VXpro for a Warp5 machine for a few days. (Then I realized it was just
too slow and unreliable.)

*shrug* I'd reboot it bi-weekly. Those things *will* kill themselves if
you have something >60 days of uptime. (That's how I killed two of them, a
TXpro, and several other boards.) Just won't boot again. Don't ask me why.
