I believe that the CV Measurement Capability has been restored.  I've 
actually moved the existing SCSI hard disk, disk controller, and HP-IP 
bus controller into a newer (but, still antique ...) computer.

The CV program now starts from DOS mode.  If you find that the machine 
is running Windows when you come up to it, you need to select the 
"Shutdown" item from the "Start" Menu and then select the "Reboot into 
DOS Mode" (or words to that effect).

While I have not had time to make a real measurement, Kai Zang has 
volunteered to do so (if nobody beats him to it) tomorrow morning.

Let me know if you encounter any further problems.
