Just what I tried to say. :-)

The "problem" now is that I might get a offer I can't refuse. I can only
say that it might consist of these numbers P2 and 333 and 19". :-\

Regarding sounds] and DSP there might actually be another way to gain some
Falcon compatiblity without the need of Milan's own DSP card. There is a
Sound card for the PC which fits in the PCI slots and it have got professional
sound _and_ a DSP 56300 and 66MHz. This card costs _much_ less than the
STarTrack card and I know of someone who is looking into writing a driver for
it to add Falcon compatibility at XBIOS lever, just like the StartTrack card
