Hi Scott,

If you have a FOOLPROOF scheme for using OT and System 7.5.3 update 2.0 on
a PowerMac 7500/100 PCI-based machine I would definitely be interested,
provided it offers a definite improvement in performance/stability over the
current scheme [i.e. "jury-rigged" MacTCP, plus following in
Systems/Extensions: Open Tpt AppleTalk Library; Open Transport Library;
OpenTptAppleTalkLib; and OpenTransportLib]. However, I would request
detailed instructions so I don't make a misstep. It's most frustrating
getting only part of the story, as you are probably aware.

Best regards,
