Someone posted a linux script a while back, and I lost it.  It allowed
you to print to a novell print server throught the linux DOSEMU.  Please
either re-post it, mail it, or point me to it.

Damn, now I need an OB hack...

Back when cases were expensive, and chips were not, the newest rage was
to have a digital display with your Mhz printed on it.  Sooo....I built one.
Now, they are really hard to configure, with wierd jumper settings that look
strangely like Karnough(sp?) maps.  Mine used two simple 8 bit switch boxes.
One was for the slow speed, and one for the fast.  I ran a single wire to the
signal side of the turbo led, and viola, a cool case just like all the rich

P.S.  If you play with the 7 segment leds, don't hook them up wrong, you will
never get the smell out of your room...
