I have no idea what the original processor was - I got it with a NewerTech
G3 card in it.  I didn't get the original processor card.  Various Mac
sites say it had a 604/604e @ some clock speed at the factory.

Hrm... This is an IBM disk on the mesh controller with a G3 card...

Thanks for those incantations.  Unfortunately, it didn't work :(  I'm
still getting the "DEFAULT CATCH!" error.

Still, I'll keep this particular spell around.

I'll have to see if I can scare up a 604 card locally.

Thanks anyway.
