One of our customers has a 720 v4r5, and he's considering upgrading to an
820 v5r1.  The customer has 2 modems, and 4 tape drives. I was handed a
printout of some of the hardware and asked which are the modem-related
stuff, and which are tape-related.  I don't know but know for sure that
someone on this list does.

The 4 tape drives are:
TAP01   - 6381-001
TAP02  - 9348-002
TAP03   - 9343-002
TAP04   - 3570-C01

I forget what the modem model- types are, but nothing fancy.

Here's some of what they handed me on the printouts:

Stuff on the current 720:
Product         Description                             YOU DIDN'T GIVE QTYs

9023            V.24 CABLE 20 FT ENHANCED               cable for 2612

Stuff proposed for the 820:
Product         Description                             Qty
0348            V.24/EIA232 20-FT PCI CABLE             16      same as above
0353            V.35 20-FT PCI CABLE                    4       same as above
2749            PCI ULTRA MAG MEDIA CTLR                2       replaces 2729
2843            PCI IOP                                 3       Used to drive 
4745            PCI WAN IOA                             10      IOA to connect 
0348 and 0353 cables
9691            BASE BUS ADAPTER                        1
9771            BASE PCI 2-LINE WAN W/MODEM               1     New combo 

My question: what's needed on the 820 list to be sure that the customer is
able to use all of their tape drives and modems?  What's missing from it?
