I ended up finding a new unit down in Milpitas and had it couriered up
here. The company is called Advantech and they manufacture all sorts of
specialty mother boards and such. We went from a Pentium 233 to a Celeron
2g (like it will ever even use that much power). I'm going to sugest we
purchase a backup board to keep on hand. It was only about $650.
I think I've spent 4 or 5 hours at home over the last several days. It'll
be a nice paycheck next week though.
