Well, I can understand that 440 is no longer a supported OS and CD's have
a limited life and are subject to damage.  The view here is that I should
dsimply move to a supported release but I have other reasons for wishing
to keep this machine at 400 -- not least of which is the ability to
compile code for 420 which I will lose if I upgrade.

Regards,
Simon Coulter.
