Still, I am not sure how to install this accel....

I'll try I guess, I have about 6 SE's here, so even if I destroy one...

Putting this accel in a SE could be the closest I come to having an Se/30..

I actually have one Se/30 but machine does those horizontal stripes...

Changed several caps on board, some obviously leeking, still no start...bars
still...will have to probe I guess...

I think I'm mixing up the various flavors of Classics. I know the
SE/30 was faster than the Classic II due to it's 32-bit data path
and the Color Classic was slower than the C II due to color
processing. The ringer is the Color Classic II which I'm unfamiliar
with. And now I know why I want one. :^)
