    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.
