Impressive list, this.  Within minutes Casper Dik, Simon (the stressed) 
Burr, Cris Lovett, Steve Butterfield, Scott Mickey, and Peter Guthrie 
confirmed that this is indeed HVD, though with VHDCI connectors, so I'm 
going to need some adaptors or new leads.  A good starting point for 
this sort of information is  Choose your server, 
choose "Full Components List".  Maybe I should trust my Sun rep more ...

Thanks again,
