We have 800 NT RAS ports for almost a year each machine has a dual PP
200 256 Meg ram fast/wide 2gig HD each machine has a 128 port equinox
SST card

at most we have seen a 25% util on the performance monitor

steel head is now running on all machines and is working great the only
problem that we are having is wires wires wires all over the place

PRI seems the way to go one wire for 23 modems
