'scuse me Lisi?  Running on the hardware its designed to run on, zero 
problems that weren't caused by udev when I moved the hd from box to box 
looking for a usable one in the boneyard.  Didn't find one either, had 
to go over a town and buy a driveless Dell 745 with 4Gb of dram in it.  
He had dozens, all off-lease.  Its as happy as a clam once I figured out 
how to neuter udev. I will probably go dicker him out of another, dead 
stable machines to run this much bigger Sheldon lathe I just brought 
home. Well built, 1500 lbs of cast iron.  But I am finding 64 years of 
use by non-machinists has not been kind to it, many things haven't been 
oiled in the 64 years its been around.

But if I don't fall over, it will get CNC'd, and be at least 10x more 
accurate than when it was new.  And since gcode is write once, run many, 
its possible it may make more stuff in the next two years than it has 
made in the previous 64 years running manually.
