RE: Sla250/30 replacement computers

HI Philip,

We had the best luck replacing our SLA 250/30 with Compaq's (first a 386,
then a 486).
The 486 was found to be too fast for some of the tuning and setup screens so
we used
a program called ATSlow to slow it down for those programs. Other wise, most
worked fine.

Others on the list may be more up on this, but area's I would expect
conflicts would be
between the standard 3-D ISA boards and the computers video (and network)
You may have to "play around" with the hardware IRQ's on the video and such
to get things going.

Hope this helps. Best of luck.
