worse, ThinkNic (the company) has ceased operations, and the
hardware (power supply) and fans are relatively fragile.  I
have 8 on the bench for piecing replacements together.

As I recall the sources _were_ available, but I do not have an 
image of that archive at hand.  I may have one on tape.

Does some one here know a locale (as at SunSite) where the 
sources might persist;  It should be possible to piece a 
replacement together.


Alternatively, Thinkic's will PXE boot across a lan just fine, 
and the central server no doubt is more easily updated.
