Concerning using CU with an Apple 7500 there are two things to keep in mind.

a) CU does not work with Open Transport
b) CU has a problem with virtual memory on a 7500

There are two messages posted on this list concerning this before and
I will quote them here:

This one was from Mark Hartman, and the next is from Tim Dorcey:

This will help I presume.
