*sigh* That byte order rubbish always gets me :( I forgot Milo completely.
Has anyone ever thought of writing a Mips howto? Or did I just volenteer?

I still can't get NT to do anything except crash (but it's good at that :)
Just now the Olli is doing all the diagnostics on the diskette. Strangely,
it always crashes when doing the "audio" test...
