Irena, Richard,
found the website where we could get the Jaunty PPC's. It's good to know 
that it is still available for PPC's. Thought that was discontinued.

Anyway, had a number of good working PC's thrown back not because of 
hardware problems but software 'blue screens of death'. But had to 
replace immediately to keep the production going.

Welcome again.
