Thanks Alan,

I've applied your new orcallator.se commit to the Orca tree in revision
176, creating orcallator.se 1.37.


Can you give me a quick write up of when the modified diskinfo.se should
be applied to somebody's tree?  It looks as if only people with certain
hardware should apply the patch.  I'll put this file into the Orca patches
directory when I get a short description.

Also, which versions of SE is this new diskinfo.se applicable for?
