There are three configurations to consider:

   A) CPU --- 13037 --- 7920M

   B) CPU --- 13037 --- 7920H

   C) CPU --- native HPIB interface --- 7920H
             (I don't remember the P/N of the native interface)

I knew that the configuration C needed a different driver than either
A or B. I was NOT aware that A and B required different drivers; it
was my impression that there was basically a "13037 driver". However,
I'm definitely not an RTE expert.
