Yes, that's my preferred way for transporting H9642's when they can't
be moved standing up. The quilt is there to protect your truck bed,
not the rack :-). Again, make sure the side panels don't blow away,
there's a pair of VAX 11/750 top panels *somewhere* along the side of the Santa
Monica freeway that disappeared once during a haul of mine...

Mechanically, they're identical except for the nameplates. There may
be slightly different firmware/electronics, but these vary depending on the
F880 rev level anyway.
