Thanks for the suggestion. I'm finally going to try and run Links 2.28 tonight and see how it goes. I only ever ran it on Linux and never even thought to check for a DOS version.

One of the power supplies for my XTs decided to die randomly. It used to work fine but now doesn't output any power to the board.
