        If nobody offers up one of the original 16mhz Color Classic

        I have a LC575 board ready to go into my CC but haven't done
the transplant yet. I do have the system enabler version required by
it though to run System 7.1. System 7.5 requires modification to
either the mainboard or analog board for it to run and I'm not sure
if I want to go that route. The Performa 550 board is basically the
Color Classic II board. According to a Japanese page on upgrading
the CC, it appears there are problems with using the LC 520 board.
