[volt-nuts] 3458A Questions - The Sequel

Is there a way to tell if the Option 001 RAM is installed using only the
front panel controls?

What set up do you use to communicate via HPIB?  I have several
possibilities that I can start playing with including PCI to HPIB boards, HP
and NI, with Win2K and XP, along with a USB to HPIB adapter.  What program
do you use?  I have downloaded the HP I/O Suites.  I also have NI Labview.
I have not tried putting it all together yet.  Any suggestions?  Easiest
might be my XP laptop and the USB to HPIB adapter.

Opt 1 is just extra (volatile) RAM, a couple of standard RAM-chips will do
that for you, if you think you need it.

The six vs. one eprom is just that: one big instead of six smaller ones, the
functional change is the contents (typically rev8 vs rev9)

I don't know if rev9 can be put in 6 eproms, but I suspect it could, if
somebody sends me a dump (do it via HPIB) I'll be happy to find out.
