Thanks for the advice.  I did need to change the case, but the power
supply did not really cool much.  I think there should be another piece
to it, since there are places to mount something onto the bottom.
Anyways, I compiled all of LVS 2003-01-30 already, and no problems.  So,
thanks for all the advice.  And actually, the 233 Mhz was really fast,
either that or I am used to building LVS's on my 133Mhz P1  ;)

Thanks again for all the advice everyone.

 Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
