Actually, I'd been too focused on getting other things done while it was up,
but all these things are on my to-do list, hopefully tonight.

Thanks for the reminders.  I need to download the memtest rpm to that system
and boot it up... after I reseat things. ;-)

I think I forgot that I said I wouldn't post and did so earlier today,
reporting that it started to act up around the time I moved it downstairs
and switched from VGA output on a computer monitor to S-video output on a
POTV (all on the mobo video I/F).  I may try lugging the monitor down and
checking that, too.
