The new machine arrived at my office today at 12:59.
I have added 2 IDE backup disks as well, so the machine is now fully
configured HW-wise and ready to go.
The machine boots, if finds its disks, the network card is working,
and the machine is in the initial phases of OS install right now.
Not sure exactly which day the new machine will replace the existing
one, but I'll keep you updated!
