Bill:

I wouldn't say wasted. IMHO, it's the only usable config for the 6100's.
AVs will also work with QuickTime 2.0, something the Spigot won't do - at
least last time I checked. Perhaps everyone could mention if they're using
System 7.5 *with* QT 2.0 or System 7.5 *without* QT 2.0. This may be the
difference between getting the PowerMac/Spigot/CU-SeeMe combo to run and
having it crash.

Stan
