Hi Daniel,

longrun works great, thank you. :-)
But I read this:

Transmeta, Intel in a battle for notebooks By Michael Kanellos
Staff Writer, CNET
November 13, 2000, 2:25 p.m. PT

comdex LAS VEGAS--Transmeta and Intel will slug it out next year with
a slew of low-powered chips for notebooks.

Comdex 2000: Back to the future In the first quarter of next year,
Transmeta announced Monday, it will release version 4.2 of its
code-morphing software that significantly reduces processor power
consumption. Code-morphing software is a software layer on top of a
chip that picks up a number of the duties that would normally be
handled by the chip itself and thereby cuts power consumption.

"We made a substantial difference (in power consumption) in
essentially what is the same silicon," Dave Ditzel, Transmeta CEO,
said Monday in an interview with CNET at the Comdex trade
show here.

Now I searched and can't find a thing about where to
get the upgrade or the tools to perform the upgrade. Are they available
somewhere or is there an eta?

CPU: Processor revision, 600 MHz
CPU: Code Morphing Software revision 4.1.4-7-51
CPU: 20000805 23:30 official release 4.1.4#2
CPU: Transmeta(tm) Crusoe(tm) Processor TM5600 stepping 03

I would love to upgrade to version 4.2 :-)
