Dave,

While others beat me to sending the file, here's how I found it: I went 
to hp.com and search for the filename. The result was a link FTP Listing 
of HP & Compaq drivers, files and utilities by filename 
<http://search.hp.com/redirect.html?url=ftp%3A//ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/&qt=sp0308.zip&type=HPR&pos=2&key=%28sp%5B0-9%5D%5B0-9%5D%5B0-9%5D%5B0-9%5D%2B%29%28.exe%29%3F&alias=%28sp%5B0-9%5D%5B0-9%5D%5B0-9%5D%5B0-9%5D%2B%29%28.exe%29%3F> 
which takes you to ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/. From here I drilled 
down to find the file.

I wish I could say I knew this before today, but this is a great 
resource to keep in mind when working on older Compaq machines. Files 
for HP machines must be somewhere else.
