I would phone them and give them a hard time. Get them to spell out
exactly what will run and what will not. And then, it would be much
appreciated if you would pass the answers on to the rest of us.
Be aware also that there are reported problems with non-ABI software
(specifically the staden contig assembly package) being unable to read
sequence files from the newest version of the sequencing software (2.1?).
This is because ABI have changed their file format recently. That might be
something else you want to ask them about.
Again, I reserve the right to be proved wrong
