Don't really want to mess with the hardware too much. These are
supposed to be identical machines to deliver quickly to a customer as
a stop-gap. I'll try with a spare HD this evening, but basicly I just
want to get something going on these machines as is as soon as
possible, so unless someonone somewhere has a brilliant idea I'll flip
a coin between the pain fo Linux and the worry of 5.2.

Can I do that from the 4.X install CD? Everything seems to be disabled
in the BIOS, not that there is much.
