Via the system controller you can set the fan speed.  Only the fan speeds
n like normal and h like high are supported.  If the machine feels like
it is hot or one of the fans has failed it'll automatically switch the
fan speed to h.  If more than one fan fails it'll power off ...

The Indy port is in reasonable shape; the O200 port has decayed a bit
over the past months but as far as time permits I'm working on getting
it to run again.
