My coworker has a Fuel sitting on his desk here, I'm staring at it. There 
is some sort of failure with mobo or power supply. He has a spare 
motherboard for it, but I think he said it's PSU. Prob caps, is there a 
known issue with them?

Also, I used nfs to get to ISO data of IRIX 6.5.2x updates for my Octane 
and it worked fine. Flashbacks to my days as a sysad @ NASA in IRIX land, 
and as a huge SGI fanboy...

Petabytes in the background, in 2001 or so.
