Subject: Acromag ADC set up 

I set up an Acromag slow controls based on the procedure that Keith wrote in T1400200. It's really pretty easy. It took an hour and 15 minutes from installing Ubuntu on a machine to having a functioning ADC channel from the Acromag unit. I haven't yet set up a DAC unit - this will require some tweaking of some of the EPICS parameters. Once I've done that I'll upload a complete procedure to the Wiki.

This is relatively promising for supporting/replacing VME slow channels.
