Out of curiosity, what's the significance of 5.0Ap42 over 6.0.x? We were
using this prior to 6.0.x and noticed that p42 had slightly lower initial
connection speeds for some people in comparison to p38. When we upgraded
from p42 to 6.0.0, the initial connection speeds went back up again (while
many people displayed no noticable change through any transitions from p38
to p42 to 6.0.0). Of course 6.0.0 also offered a lot of handy
features/utilities. We've been using 6.0.x for a while now with our 4004,
4048, and 4002 and haven't encountered any problems at all (associated with
the OS). We do have occasional modem slot problems in one of our maxes,
but it's hardware related and has been going on since before 6.0.x was even
