Don't forget - can also accept an ethernet podule so can act as a 
"bridge" between the old and the new.

That's why I said I'd use my A5000 to ftp the ROM image from the PC to 
the FileStore. Well, I *could* run awServer or Level4 on the A5000, but 
seeing as I have to start the FileStore to provide the clock (I can't be 
bothered looking for the clock box), it can't be THAT much trouble for 
the FileStore to serve up 16K files. ;-)


Best wishes,

Rick.
