useful information. i was torn about responding, reluctant to accommodate the 
devil's formats, revelling in the fact that whenever i have to deal with him, 
i get to name the price. the quality of the sysutils package is yet another 
reason to appreciate gnu/linux. i'd only ever used it for memtest. a couple 
of years back, in a semi-drunken discussion on the merits of *nix/linux, i 
made a claim that there was nothing the devil could do that *nix/linux 
couldn't undo. more ammo. thanks, sean.
