SubjectRe: software reset
From
Date
Hi

1 way to get a garentee reboot is to use a 2nd computer a parrell port
and a resistor + relay and get the relay to short the reset pins
on the MB of the machine you wish to reboot.

You could set this up to reboot up 2 8 machine usign cheap hardware
like a 486 or something.
