	  Has anyone heard back from Symbolics on why the 8.0.1 flod files don't work
	on all the machines.

    We had this problem on a 40. We were told the problem is if the new flod
    files are used to create a file on a disk formatted with the old ones, you
    will corrupt something such that during clear memory you get the FEP reset
    (bus error). 

I don't understand this explanation.  Since when can you create files
from the FEP?  Do you mean Disk Restore'ing an IFS tape?  Other than
that, the FEP can only write into pre-existing files.
