Still no luck getting AppleTalk shares to show up in the chooser on the powerbook. I'd heard 7.5.5 + OpenTransport was needed to get things working, but it's not working yet. Worse yet, I've upgraded myself to a place where netscape 3.0 no longer is happy running. It complains it is out of resources. I may have to try tearing out extensions and see if I can get enough RAM back.
I dug around for some other testing utilities and found a newer one which also claims there is no FPU present. I was hoping it was just my ancient copy of Norton Utilities which was wrong.
So, I'm still holding out hope it's a System Enabler issue which will go away at OS 8.1, but there's a growing possibility I was sold a re-labled 68LC040.
No luck finding another appropriate 68040 online either. Right now the ebay sellers either have crack-pipe pricing or poor feedback and won't answer questions.
