Mmmm, clearly I havn't gotten far enough up the SANE food chain yet. I'll
keep climbing....   OK. I get it.

I understand the decision, but should SANE require a warning in these
cases?  It's kind of counter-intuitive to expose a 4 bit option if it's
just going to get coerced to 8 bit anyway.

HMG- Apologies for the from-addresses, hopefully this will fix them.

Next question:

Does anyone know of a SCSI sniffer for W2k available for free/student
prices?  a tcpdump equivalent would be ideal.

TIA, -Greg
