Lo, and many moons ago, I made a wise decision, then.  Of course, I
have a *spare* 387 coprocessor.  386en really aren't worth much these

Thanks, all, I'll try to fix up the machine to the point where I can
put the Hurd on it.  I had sort of been waiting far a release to try
the Hurd again, but the recent discussions have been too interesting.
I'm going to be careful with the hardware; the cursed machine has
sentimental value now.
