Otay, I need a little personal help, and help for a couple of friends, so
I'll lump them all into a single message, to minimize the s:n ratio...

1) For me: This may actually be on-topic, but if not, it's close. I have a
from-scratch linux installation, and I'm trying to find the source code for
the (original) X-windows solitare game of Spider. I don't have Gnome or KDE
running (Actually, it's FVWM2... ;-) and so many of the newer games won't
compile unless I add .5G of libraries... which I'm unwilling to add for 1
frelling game. Anyone have the source tarball on an ancient linux distro
somewhere? (I tried all mine, and couldn't find it... :-( )

2) Off-topic, but hackerdom-based... I have a friend that has an AMD
"Super-Socket-7" pentium based motherboard - model: Micronics C200. It has
a fragged BIOS. He gave me the "correct" .bin file that I burned onto a
provided EEPROM - but it 1) wasn't the right file, or 2) wasn't the right
format for burning. Does anyone have that board that could get me a
workable BIOS dump?

3) Off-topic, but it's for a *really* good friend of mine... he an Agfa
Snapscan 1236 SCSI scanner, and would like the transparency / slide add-on
gizmo for it. I've googled & ebayed... no useful hits... :-( Anyone here
know where to get one for sale?

As always, all replies offlist, please, and thanks for any and all help
anyone could provide...
