	<*> This is a PC-7300 195W PS. -12v should be 300ma.

	<*> This is a 3b1 2meg motherboard PS at 245w.

	From what I can see the difference between the 2 PS's are as follows:

		PC-7300	195w				UNIX-PC 245w.		
Q1:         JE8503                      |     MJ12005 /w larger Heat Sink
R6:	1.5k @ 2W (2W guess)            |     1.5k @ 5W (5W guess)
C102,103:	470uF @ 50v (BOTH)      |     10000uF @ 6.3v (BOTH)
Q101:      1 less Heatsink              |     1 added Heatsink
CRB101:     30CTQ030                    |     MBR3035PT
C111:		470uf @ 50v             |     2200uf @ 25v

	The above info is from looking inside my 3b1 and my pc-7300. This
	was a visual only comparision. I don't have any prints for these

	NOW!!!! If only someone with Repair manuals can identify these
	parts then everyone could upgrade there pc-7300 PS :-). For the
	Q101 Heatsink you could use the black side of the old Q1 sink :-).

	Then someone would be able to start a group upgrade with the correct
	info for all those wishing to upgrade there PC-7300 PS for RAM,HD's
	more Boards, etc UPGRADES.
