Okay, so who was it on this list wanted to be called Will?   At any
rate, Bill,  I'll file that away for future reference.

I really doubt that IMD will do anything with the CW MK4.

Another rule of thumb is that if a motherboard is post-P4 and lacks a
parallel port, it's unlikely that it'll give any useful results with
TESTFDC.   I think the floppy facility was included mostly for
high-density *read* compatibility.

I've had some decent results with P4 and Socket 939 motherboards but
after that, not so much.  I don't know if that's a bright-line rule, but
it seems to hold with my gear.
