Ta, will take a look!
Ultimately I'd like something that sat on the network and could be controlled
remotely (and be able to say FTP or HTTP or NFS or SMB transfer data to a
remote box holding disk images) - but that's a colossal amount of work to get
going under DOS! Serial port control is a little easier though, and at least
means the machine with the drives in doesn't need its own keyboard / display.
Or I could just get a KVM, but that's no fun :-)
