I'll buy that, since upon closer inspection, the 'P' seems to typically
indicate that it's a PCI bus system from further investigation. Still  
haven't found any full specs on it. Question remains, is the 601 gonna 
work? If the 601 is byte-for-byte assembly compatible with 603, I'd   
say definitely, but the 601 predates the 603, which leads me to believe
that there may be 603 instructions that aren't on the 601. Somebody have
a 601 or specs so they can check into this?
