What was the title of the seminar you were attending and who was the speaker? Was this something on a slide or just something that the speaker said? #1 is true since the CIP (Channel Interface Processor) only plugs into a 7000/7500 class box.

We'll try to sort out which mkting person was out running amok and fix the presentation (and most likely the speaker). thanks, dave - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
