	Now that you mention it, I do remember that part of the NVRAM FAQ.
Though I just checked, and I did get the 150ns NVRAM from mouser.  Oh
well, at least I don't have to re-enter all the IDPROM data each time the
system boots. :) Also just realized that I paid as much for the NVRAM chip
as I already had in the system to begin with (surplus sales are great :).
	As for the IPX, I have one of those two (my web server), and as
far as I can tell, its NVRAM chip is fine (for now...). Anyway, thanks for
the help.
