LC III Quirk

LC III Quirk -- Matt Strange writes:

After a frustrating few hours trying to configure some LC IIIs yesterday, I discovered something you may not know - but definitely should.

According to Katie Kenny of Farallon, "Due to a last minute change in the design of the LC III, any add-on card that has an FPU on it will crash the machine." [Indeed it will!] "The remedy is to remove the FPU from the card and put it in the socket on the motherboard."

My experience showed this to be a real problem and a real solution. Hope this saves you a headache down the road somewhere.
