I received 17 responses since I sent my message yesterday.  Thanks to those who
responded quickly and provide the information.

Below is a summary of the responses.  It shows the kind of software version people 
are using on the hardware platform they have and the network protocols they are
supporting.  Hope this gives those who are planning on or in the process of 
deploying BGP4 some idea of what software version to use.

Other information: one has to have at least 16MB momery in order to load BGP4
		   software on cisco routers.

Also, see Paul's notes on version selection on cisco routers.

Just as a side note, 10.0 has left beta, and we are suggesting that everyone
who is migrating to BGP4 run 10.0, instead of 9.21+BGP4, since 10.0 receives
better support (9.21+BGP4 is on the way out).
