Getting files off a 7300--Mission accomplished

That could be helpful. There seems to be a need for it (at least one), 
and it's going to take awhile to sift thorough everything to find all 
the disks.

Also I'm wondering if this system had a 70mb disk originally and was 
replaced with a 40mb disk from another 7300. That could explain why the 
TCP drivers are not on it, they might be on a crashed disk somewhere in 
that pile of stuff.

Dig we must...
