You'd be better off getting a second hand non-powermac to hang off the 373
and grab all the data. Network the powermac to it and do your analysis
off-line (I assume that the original non-powermac that came with the 373
has died?). That way the 373 can be generating more data while you analyse
on the decent machine.
