I'll put that on the list for the next time I need to reboot it.
I'm sure I have a 6.1 CD somewhere, and probably a 4.x CD also.
(The box is old enough -- a Dell Precision 420 -- that it quite
likely will run 4.x.)

I've also got another old Dell with an xl on the mainboard -- an
OptiPlex GX1 running 6.1 -- which will need to get moved to a 100Mb
port one of these days.  That will provide another data point.
