only bad thing about a rev A is that the ata chip for the hd won't lwork well with a slaved drive and often corrupts data. this can be solved with a 75$ ata pci card though.

you are offering it free so I will take it smile just in case mine ever dies. I plan on buying an ata card anyway because my dvd burner doesn't burn @ 8x very well on the b&w optical bus. its only an ata 16 (same chip apple used as the ata hd bus in beige G3's. 8x is 11MB a sec and when 16 is that max its tough so my plan is hd on ata card and dvd burner on built in ata 33 bus.

thanks again man smile
