below.

          6A(d) Refunding of Swing Line Loans.  Upon demand by First Union,
                -----------------------------                              
Swing Line Loans shall be refunded or participations therein acquired, as
applicable, in accordance with the following provisions.  Such refunding or
acquisition will occur no later than 4:00 p.m. (Charlotte, North Carolina time)
on the day of such demand if made before 2:00 p.m. (Char-

lotte, North Carolina time) and no later than 12:00 noon (Charlotte, North
Carolina time) on the next succeeding Business Day if demand therefor is made
after 2:00 p.m. (Charlotte, North Carolina time).

                (1) Prior to the occurrence of an Event of Default or Potential
     Default, Swing Line Loans shall be refunded by the Lenders.  Such
     refundings shall be made by the Lenders in accordance with their respective
     Percentage Shares and shall, thereafter, be reflected as actual Regular
     Loans of the Lenders on the books and records of the Administrative Agent.
     The type of Regular Loan made by the Lenders in connection with the
     refunding of any Swing Line Loan shall be the type of Loan identified by
     the Companies in the Loan Request for such Swing Line Loan as being
     scheduled to repay such Swing Line Loan.

                (2) After the occurrence of any Event of Default or Potential
     Default, each Lender (other than First Union) shall irrevocably and
     unconditionally purchase from First Union, without recourse or warranty
     (except that such outstanding Swing Line Loans in fact were made in
     accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, and are not subject to
     any Liens arising out of any act of First Union), an undivided interest and
     participation in any Swing Line Loans then outstanding, by paying to First
     Union, in dollars immediately available to First Union, an amount equal to
     such Lender's Percentage Share of such Swing Line Loans, and thereafter,
     except as otherwise provided in the second succeeding sentence, the
     Lenders' respective interests in such Swing Line Loans, and the remaining
     interest of First Union in such Swing Line Loans, shall in all respects be
     treated as Regular Loans under this Agreement of the type identified by the
     Companies in the Loan Request for such Swing Line Loan as being scheduled
     to repay such Swing Line Loan, but such Swing Line Loans shall continue to
     be evidenced by the Note which evidences the Swing Line Loans.  If any
     Lender does not pay any amount which it is required to pay to First Union,
     First Union shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such
     Lender, together with interest thereon, at the Applicable Corporate Rate,
     for each day from the date of such demand, if made prior to 2:00 p.m.
     (Charlotte, North Carolina time) on any Business Day, or, if made after
     2:00 p.m. from the next Business Day following the date of such demand,
     until the date such amount is paid to First Union by such Lender.  If such
     Lender does not pay 

     such amount forthwith upon First Union's demand therefor, and until such
     time as such Lender makes the required payment, First Union shall be deemed
     to continue to have outstanding a Swing Line Loan in the amount of such
     unpaid participation obligation for all purposes of this Agreement other
     than those provisions requiring such other Lender to purchase a
     participation therein. First Union shall upon the request of such Lender,
     furnish to such Lender a participation certificate evidencing the
     participation purchased by such Lender.

                (3)  [Intentionally Omitted].

                (4) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the
     contrary, no Lender shall be obligated to refund or acquire a participation
     interest in any Swing Line Loans made by First Union unless (i) First Union
     believed in good faith that all conditions specified in Paragraph 6A(a)
     above and Paragraph 9 below to the making of such Swing Line Loans were
     satisfied at the time such Swing Line Loans were made, or (ii) such Lender
     had actual knowledge that any such condition had not been satisfied and
     failed to notify First Union in writing prior to the time First Union made
     such Swing Line Loan that First Union was not authorized to make a Swing
     Line Loan until such condition had been satisfied, or (iii) the
     satisfaction of any such condition that was not satisfied had been waived
     by the requisite Lenders in accordance with the provisions of this
     Agreement, or the making of such Swing Line Loan in the face of such non-
     satisfied condition or conditions had been consented to by the requisite
     Lenders in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.

     7.   Miscellaneous Lending Provisions.
          -------------------------------- 

          7(a)  Conversion and Continuation.
               --------------------------- 

               (1)  The Companies may elect from time to time to convert
     Eurodollar Loans to Corporate Rate Loans by giving the Administrative Agent
     at least one Business Day's prior irrevocable notice of such election. Any
     conversion of Eurodollar Loans may only be made on the last day of the
     applicable Interest Period. The Companies may elect from time to time to
     convert Corporate Rate Loans to Eurodollar Loans by giving the
     Administrative Agent at least two Eurodollar Business Days' prior
     irrevocable notice of such election. All such elections shall be made by
     means of a Loan Request. Upon receipt of a Loan Request, the Administrative
     Agent shall promptly notify each of the Lenders affected thereby thereof.
     No Corporate Rate Loan shall be converted into a Eurodollar Loan if an
     Event of Default or Potential Default has occurred and is continuing on the
     day occurring two Eurodollar Business Days prior to the date of the
     conversion requested by the Companies or on the date of conversion. All or
     any part of outstanding Loans may be converted as provided herein, provided
     that partial conversions shall be in a principal amount of $1,000,000 or
     whole multiples of $100,000 in excess thereof.
 
               (2)  (A) Any Eurodollar Loan may be continued as such upon the
     expiration of the Interest Period with respect thereto by the Companies
     giving the Administrative Agent at least two Eurodollar Business Days'
     prior irrevocable notice of such election as set forth in a Loan Request,
     and (B) if the Companies shall fail to give notice as provided above, the
     Companies shall be deemed to have elected to continue the affected
     Eurodollar Loan on the last day of the relevant Interest Period as a
     Eurodollar Loan having the same Interest Period as the continued Eurodollar
     Loan; provided, however, that no Eurodollar Loan may be continued as such
     when any Event of Default or Potential Default has occurred and is
     continuing on the day occurring two Eurodollar Business Days prior to the
     proposed date of such continuation, but shall be automatically converted to
     a Corporate Rate Loan on the last day of the then current Interest Period
     applicable thereto, and the Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders
     affected thereby and the Companies promptly that such automatic conversion
     will occur.

               (3)  Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the
     contrary, at no time shall there be Eurodollar Loans outstanding with more
     than five (5) different Interest Periods.

          7(b)  Inability to Determine Rate.  If the Administrative Agent 
               ---------------------------       
(which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon the Companies,
provided such determination is made on a reasonable basis) that by reason of
circumstances affecting the London interbank eurodollar market adequate and
reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Eurodollar Rate for any
Interest Period, the Administrative Agent shall forthwith give facsimile notice
of such determination, confirmed in writing, to each Lender affected thereby and
to the Companies.  If such notice is given:  (1) no Loan may be funded as a
Eurodollar Loan, (2) any Loan that was to have been converted to a Eurodollar
Loan shall, subject to the provisions hereof, be continued as a Corporate Rate
Loan and (3) any outstanding Eurodollar Loan shall be converted on the last day
of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto to a Corporate Rate
Loan.  Until such notice has been withdrawn by the Administrative Agent, the
Companies shall not have the right to convert a Loan to a Eurodollar Loan or
fund any Loan as a Eurodollar Loan or to continue a Eurodollar Loan as such.
The Administrative Agent shall withdraw such notice in the event that the
circumstances giving rise thereto no longer exist and that adequate and
reasonable means exist for ascertaining the Eurodollar Rate for the Interest
Period requested by the Companies, and following withdrawal of such notice by
the Administrative Agent, the Companies shall have the right to fund any Loan as
a Eurodollar Loan or convert a Loan to a Eurodollar Loan or to continue a
Eurodollar Loan in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

          7(c)  Illegality.  Notwithstanding any other provisions herein, if
                ----------
any regulation, treaty or directive or any change therein or in the
interpretation or application thereof, shall make it unlawful for any Lender to
make or maintain Eurodollar Loans as contemplated by this Agreement: (1) the
commitment of such Lender hereunder to continue Eurodollar Loans or to convert
Corporate Rate Loans to Eurodollar Loans shall forthwith be suspended and the
Administrative Agent shall forthwith give facsimile notice to the Companies of
such illegality, and upon giving such notice, (2) such Lender's Loans then
outstanding as Eurodollar Loans, if any, shall be converted automatically to
Corporate Rate Loans at the end of their respective Interest

Periods or within such earlier period as required by law. In the event of a
conversion of any such Loan prior to the end of its applicable Interest Period
the Companies hereby agree promptly to pay any Lender affected thereby, upon
demand, the amounts required pursuant to Paragraph 7(f) below, it being agreed
and understood that such conversion shall constitute a prepayment for all
purposes hereof. The provisions hereof shall survive the termination of this
Agreement and payment of the outstanding Loans and all other amounts payable
hereunder. If subsequently the Administrative Agent determines that the cause of
such illegality has ceased to exist, the Administrative Agent will so advise the
Companies by facsimile notice and the Companies may convert such Corporate Rate
Loans to Eurodollar Loans or request that any Loan be funded as a Eurodollar
Loan as provided in Paragraph 7(j) below. Notwithstanding anything contained
herein to the contrary, in the event that any law, regulation, treaty or
directive or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof
shall make it unlawful for any Lender to make or maintain Eurodollar Loans as
contemplated by this Agreement, then in lieu of the provisions and procedures
set forth above, the Company may, at its sole option, elect to require such
Lender to assign all of its Maximum Commitment and Loans to another Lender or to
another party meeting the criteria set forth in Paragraph 15(i) below, which
such assignment shall be made pursuant to the terms and provisions contained in
Paragraph 15(i) below.

          7(d)  Requirements of Law; Increased Costs.  In the event that any 
               ------------------------------------                         
change subsequent to the date hereof in any applicable law, order, regulation,
treaty or directive issued by any central bank or other Governmental Authority,
or in the governmental or judicial interpretation or application thereof, or
compliance by any Lender or the L/C Bank or any participant in the L/C
Obligations pursuant to a Participation Agreement (an "L/C Participant") with
any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) by any central
bank or other Governmental Authority:

               (1)  subjects any Lender, the L/C Bank or any L/C Participant to
     any tax of any kind whatsoever with respect to this Agreement or any Loans
     made hereunder or any Letter of Credit issued pursuant hereto (or any
     participations therein), or changes the basis of taxation of payments to
     such Lender of principal, fee, interest or any other amount payable
     hereunder (except for change in the rate of tax on the overall net income
     of such Lender);

               (2)  imposes, modifies or holds applicable any reserve, capital
     requirement of general application to similarly situated financial
     institutions, special deposit, compulsory loan or similar requirements
     against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the
     account of, advances or loans by, letters of credit issued by, or other
     credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of
     such Lender which are (in the case of Loans) not otherwise included in the
     determination of the Eurodollar Rate, the Applicable Eurodollar Rate or the
     Corporate Rate; or

               (3) imposes on such Lender, the L/C Bank or any L/C Participant
     any other condition;

and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender of
making, renewing or maintaining any Loan or the cost to the L/C Bank of issuing
or maintaining any Letter of Credit or the cost to any L/C Participant of
participating therein, or to reduce any amount receivable in respect thereof or
to reduce the rate of return on the capital of such Lender, the L/C Bank or such
L/C Participant or any Person controlling such Lender, the L/C Bank or such L/C
Participant, then, in any such case, the Companies shall promptly pay to the
Administrative Agent for remittance to such Lender, the L/C Bank or such L/C
Participant, upon its written demand made through the Administrative Agent, any
additional amounts necessary to compensate such Lender, the L/C Bank or such L/C
Participant for such additional cost or reduced amounts receivable or rate of
return as determined by such Lender, the L/C Bank or such L/C Participant with
respect to this Agreement or Loans made hereunder or Letters of Credit issued
pursuant hereto, subject to the limitations set forth in the following sentence.
If a Lender, the L/C Bank or an L/C Participant becomes entitled to claim any
additional amounts pursuant to this Paragraph 7(d), it shall, promptly after it
obtains knowledge thereof and determines to request compensation hereunder,
notify the Companies in writing through the Administrative Agent of the event by
reason of which it has become so entitled, provided that (A) any amounts owed by
the Companies to such Lender, the L/C Bank or such L/C Participant pursuant to
this Paragraph 7(d) shall begin to accrue on the later to occur of (1) the date
on which such amounts began to be incurred, and (2) the date which is thirty
(30) days prior to the date such notice is submitted to the Companies, and (B)
such Lender, the L/C Bank or such L/C Participant, through the Administrative

Agent, will designate a different lending office for those Loans or Letters of
Credit affected by such event if such designation will avoid the need for, or
reduce the amount of, such compensation, so long as any such designation is
reasonably convenient for such Lender, the L/C Bank or such L/C Participant.  A
certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing
sentence containing the calculation thereof in reasonable detail submitted by a
Lender, the L/C Bank or an L/C Participant, through the Administrative Agent, to
the Companies shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. The
provisions hereof shall survive the termination of this Agreement and payment of
the outstanding Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder. Notwithstanding
anything contained herein to the contrary, in the event that any change occurs
as described in subparagraphs (1), (2) or (3) hereof, the result of which is to
increase the cost to any Lender of making, renewing or maintaining any Loan or
the cost to the L/C Bank or any L/C Participant of issuing or maintaining any
Letter of Credit or participating therein or to reduce any amount receivable in
respect thereof or to reduce the rate of return on the capital of such Lender,
the L/C Bank or such L/C Participant or any Person controlling such Lender, the
L/C Bank or such L/C Participant, then in lieu of the provisions, payments and
procedures set forth above, the Company may, at its sole option, elect to
require such Lender, the L/C Bank or such L/C Participant to assign all of its
Maximum Commitment and Loans, or its Letter of Credit or participation therein,
as applicable, to another Lender, another L/C Bank or another L/C Participant,
as applicable, or to another party meeting the criteria set forth in Paragraph
15(i) below, which such assignment shall be made pursuant to the terms and
provisions contained in Paragraph 15(i) below.

          7(e)  Funding.  Each Lender shall be entitled to fund all or any 
               -------      
portion of its Loans in any manner it may determine in its sole discretion, but
all calculations and transactions hereunder shall be conducted as though all
Lenders actually fund all Eurodollar Loans through the purchase in London of
offshore dollar deposits in the amount of the relevant Eurodollar Loan in
maturities corresponding to the applicable Interest Period.

          7(f)  Funding Indemnification -- Prepayment.  In addition to all other
               -------------------------------------                           
payment obligations hereunder, in the event any Loan which is outstanding as a
Eurodollar Loan is prepaid prior to the last day of the applicable Interest
Period, whether following a voluntary prepayment or a mandatory prepayment, the
Companies shall immediately pay to the Lenders holding the 

Eurodollar Loans prepaid, through the Administrative Agent, an amount equal to
the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest which would have accrued on
the principal amount of the Eurodollar Loan so prepaid to the last day of the
Interest Period for such Eurodollar Loan at the applicable rate of interest
hereunder for such Eurodollar Loan over (ii) the interest component of the
amount the Administrative Agent would have bid in the London interbank market
for dollar deposits of leading banks of amounts comparable to such principal
amount repaid and maturities comparable to such period, as reasonably determined
by the Administrative Agent, together with an additional amount compensating
each such Lender for losses and reasonable expenses incurred by such Lender in
connection with such prepayment, including, without limitation, such as may
arise out of a re-employment of funds obtained by such Lender and from fees
payable to terminate the deposits from which such funds were obtained, such
interest amount, losses, and expenses and the method of calculation thereof
being set forth in reasonable detail and a statement delivered to the Companies
by such Lender. Under no circumstances shall any Lender have any obligation to
remit monies to the Companies upon prepayment of any Eurodollar Loan even under
circumstances which do not result in the necessity of the payment by the
Companies of any amount hereunder. The provisions hereof shall survive
termination of this Agreement and payment of the outstanding Loans and all
amounts payable hereunder.

          7(g) Funding Indemnification -- Failure to Borrow, Default or Failure
              ----------------------------------------------------------------
to Continue or Convert.  In addition to all other payment obligations 
- ----------------------        
hereunder, in the event the Companies shall fail to borrow an Eurodollar Loan or
to continue or to make a conversion to a Eurodollar Loan after the Companies
have given notice thereof as provided in Paragraph 7(a) above, or if after
giving a notice to have any Lender make a Eurodollar Loan, such Lender is not
obligated to do so due to the existence of an Event of Default or Potential
Default, then the Companies shall immediately pay any Lender holding the
Eurodollar Loan not borrowed, continued or converted, or which would have been
obligated to make such Eurodollar Loan, through the Administrative Agent, an
additional amount compensating each such Lender for losses and expenses incurred
by such Lender in connection with such failure to borrow, continue or convert a
Eurodollar Loan, or the occurrence of an Event of Default or Potential Default
including, without limitation, such as may arise out of re-employment of funds
obtained by such Lender and from fees payable to terminate the deposits from
which such funds were obtained, such losses and expenses and the method of
calculation thereof being set forth in

reasonable detail in a statement delivered to the Companies by such Lender. The
provisions hereof shall survive termination of this Agreement and payment of the
outstanding Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.

Security Agreement and to the extent, if any, that the Companies are not
required to or do not reimburse the Administrative Agent for any such
indemnification or costs, then the L/C Bank and the Lenders will do so ratably
in accordance with their Repayment Shares, unless such cost is related to an
examination by the L/C Bank or a Lender under Paragraph 12 of the Security
Agreement, in which case all such costs will be borne by the examining L/C Bank
or Lender; provided, however, that if the Companies are not required to
           --------  -------                                           
reimburse the Administrative Agent for any such indemnification or costs due to
the gross negligence or willful misconduct of either the Collateral Agent or the
Administrative Agent, then the L/C Bank and the Lenders shall not be required to
reimburse the Administrative Agent for any such indemnification or costs.  The
Administrative Agent shall have no duties or responsibilities except those
expressly set forth therein, nor any fiduciary relationship with the L/C Bank or
any Lender, and no implied covenants, responsibilities, obligations or
liabilities shall be read into the Credit Documents or otherwise exist against
the Administrative Agent.

Affiliates shall be (1) liable to the L/C Bank, any Lender, the Collateral
Agent, or the Companies for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or
such Person under or in connection with the Credit Documents (except for its or
such Person's own gross negligence or willful misconduct), or (2) responsible in
any manner to any of the L/C Bank, the Lenders, the Collateral Agent or the
Companies for: (i) any recitals, statements, representations or warranties made
by the Companies or any officer thereof contained in the Credit Documents or in
any certificate, report, statement or other document referred to or provided for
in, or received by the Administrative Agent under or in connection with, the
Credit Documents (except such as are prepared by the Administrative Agent and,
then, only to the extent the Administrative Agent is responsible for
verification of the accuracy and completeness of the information contained
therein or the facts upon which such information is based as expressly provided
herein) or for the value, validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability,
collectability or sufficiency of the Credit Documents or for any failure of the
Companies to perform their obligations thereunder, or (ii) any action taken or
omitted to be taken by the Administrative Agent with respect to the Other
Collateral (as defined in the Security Agreement) in accordance with written
instructions given as permitted under the Credit Documents, or (iii) assuring
compliance of the Credit Documents and the transactions contemplated by the
Credit Documents with any law or regulation binding on such Person, it being
expressly acknowledged, agreed and understood that each such Person has obtained
independent advice satisfactory to it in all such respects. The Administrative
Agent shall be under no obligation to the L/C Bank or any Lender to ascertain or
to inquire as to the observance or performance of any of the agreements
contained in, or conditions of, the Credit Documents (other than agreements
required to be complied with by the Administrative Agent thereunder and subject
to the standards of care set forth herein with respect thereto) or to inspect
the properties, books or records of the Companies. The Administrative Agent
shall be entitled to refrain from exercising any discretionary powers or actions
under this Agreement or any other Credit Document until it shall have received
the prior written consent of one hundred percent (100%) of the Lenders (and,
after 

the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the L/C Bank)
to such action.

          14(d)  Reliance by Administrative Agent.  The Administrative Agent 
                 --------------------------------  
shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any
note, writing, resolution, notice, consent, certification, affidavit, letter,
cablegram, telegram, telecopy, telex or teletype message, statement, order or
other document or conversation believed by it to be genuine and correct and to
have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person or Persons and upon advice
and statements of legal counsel (including, without limitation, counsel to the
Companies), independent accountants and other experts selected by the
Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent may deem and treat the payee of
any Note as the owner thereof for all purposes unless a written notice of
assignment, negotiation or transfer thereof shall have been filed with the
Administrative Agent. As to any Lender or the L/C Bank the Administrative Agent
shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to take any action under the
Credit Documents unless it shall first receive such advice or concurrence of the
Majority Lenders (or all Lenders, as required under the Credit Documents,
including, after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of
Default, the L/C Bank) or it shall first be indemnified to its satisfaction by
the Lenders and the L/C Bank against any and all liability and expense which may
be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any action (other
than liability and expense arising out of the Administrative Agent's gross
negligence or willful misconduct). As to any Lender or the L/C Bank, the
Administrative Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in
refraining from acting, under the Credit Documents in accordance with a request
of the Majority Lenders (or all Lenders, if applicable, including, after the
occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the L/C Bank)
absent gross negligence and willful misconduct on the part of the Administrative
Agent in the method in which it acts or refrains from acting in accordance
therewith, and such request and any action taken or failure to act pursuant
thereto shall be binding upon all the Lenders and the L/C Bank.

          14(e)  Notice of Default; Agreement to Advance.  The Administrative 
                 --------------------------------------- 
Agent shall be deemed to have no knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any
Event of Default or Potential Default hereunder unless the Administrative Agent
has received notice from a Lender, the L/C Bank or the Companies referring to
the Credit Documents, describing such Event of Default or Potential Default and
stating that such notice is a "notice of de-

fault". In the event that the Administrative Agent receives such a notice, the
Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Lenders, the L/C Bank and
the Collateral Agent.

          14(f)  Non-Reliance on Administrative Agent and Other Lenders.  Each 
                 ------------------------------------------------------ 
Lender and the L/C Bank expressly acknowledges that neither the Administrative
Agent nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact
or Affiliates has made any representations or warranties to it and that no act
by the Administrative Agent hereafter taken, including any review of the affairs
of the Companies, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty
by the Administrative Agent to any such Person or the L/C Bank. Each Lender and
the L/C Bank represents to the Administrative Agent that it has, independently
and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other such Person or
their respective counsel, and based on such documents and information as it has
deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of and investigation into the
business, operations, property, financial and other condition and
creditworthiness of the Companies and made its own decision to extend credit
hereunder and enter into the Credit Documents. Each Lender and the L/C Bank also
represents that it will, independently and without reliance upon the
Administrative Agent or any other such Person, and based on such documents,
information and legal advice (including, without limitation, advice of
regulatory counsel to it) as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to
make its own credit analysis, appraisals and decisions in entering into the
Credit Documents and taking or not taking action thereunder, and to make such
investigation as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business,
operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the
Companies. Except for notices, reports and other documents expressly required to
be furnished to the Lenders and the L/C Bank by the Administrative Agent
hereunder, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to
provide any Lender or the L/C Bank with any legal advice or credit or other
information concerning the business, operations, property, financial and other
condition or creditworthiness of the Companies which may come into the
possession of the Administrative Agent or any of its officers, directors,
employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or Affiliates.

          14(g)  Indemnification.  The Companies, jointly and severally, agree
                 ---------------                                               
to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Administrative Agent in its capacity
as such and each Lender and the L/C Bank from and against any and all claims,
obligations, penalties, actions, suits, judgments, reasonable costs and dis-

bursements, losses, liabilities and damages (including, without limitation,
reasonable attorneys' fees) of any kind whatsoever which may at any time be
imposed on, assessed against or incurred by such Person in any way resulting
from any action taken or omitted to be taken by the Companies relating to or
arising out of the Credit Documents or any documents contemplated by or referred
to therein or the transactions contemplated thereby.  The Administrative Agent
agrees that it will promptly notify the Companies of any such claim, action or
suit asserted or commenced against it and that the Companies may assume the
defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent
at the Companies' sole expense, that the Administrative Agent will cooperate
with the Companies on such defense, and that the Administrative Agent will not
settle any such claim, action or suit without the consent of the Companies;
provided, however, that in the event the Administrative Agent is not reasonably
- --------  -------                                                              
satisfied with such defense, the Administrative Agent may assume such defense
with counsel satisfactory to the Administrative Agent at the Companies' sole
expense.  The Lenders and the L/C Bank agree to indemnify and hold harmless the
Administrative Agent in its capacity as such ratably in accordance with their
Repayment Shares to the extent required by the Companies hereunder if the
Administrative Agent is not reimbursed by the Companies hereunder and without
limiting the obligation of the Companies to do so; provided, however, that the
                                                   --------  -------          
Lenders and the L/C Bank shall not be required to indemnify the Administrative
Agent under this Paragraph 14(g) for claims, obligations, penalties, actions,
suits, judgments, costs, disbursements, losses, liabilities or damages resulting
from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Administrative Agent.
The indemnification obligations of the Companies, the L/C Bank and Lenders under
this Paragraph 14(g) shall survive termination of this Agreement and payment in
full of the Obligations.

        14(h)  Administrative Agent in Its Individual Capacity.  The 
               -----------------------------------------------
Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may make loans to, accept deposits from
and generally engage in any kind of business with the Companies as though the
Administrative Agent were not the Administrative Agent hereunder. With respect
to such loans made or renewed by it and any note issued to it hereunder, the
Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers under the Credit
Documents as any Lender hereunder and may exercise the same as though it were
not the Administrative Agent, and the terms "Lender" and "Lenders" shall include
the Administrative Agent in its individual capacity.

        14(i)  Successor Agents.  The Administrative Agent may resign as such 
               ---------------- 
under the Credit Documents upon ninety (90) days' prior written notice to the
other parties hereto. If the Administrative Agent shall resign, then, on or
before the effective date of such resignation, the Majority Lenders shall
appoint a successor agent reasonably acceptable to the Companies or, if the
Majority Lenders are unable to agree on the appointment of a successor agent,
the Administrative Agent shall appoint a successor agent for the Lenders and the
L/C Bank, which successor agent shall be reasonably acceptable to the Companies,
whereupon such successor agent shall succeed to the rights, powers and duties of
the Administrative Agent, and the term "Administrative Agent" shall mean such
successor agent effective upon its appointment, and the former Administrative
Agent's rights, powers and duties shall be terminated without any other or
further act or deed on the part of such former Administrative Agent or any of
the parties to this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents or successors
thereto. After the Administrative Agent's resignation hereunder, the provisions
of this Paragraph 14(i) shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or
omitted to be taken by it while it was Administrative Agent under the Credit
Documents.

        14(j)  Authority to Execute Security Agreement.  The Lenders and the 
               ---------------------------------------  
L/C Bank hereby authorize the Administrative Agent to execute the Security
Agreement in its capacity as agent for each of the Lenders and the L/C Bank on
behalf of the Lenders and the L/C Bank, and the Lenders and the L/C Bank
specifically consent to the terms thereof, including without limitation the
appointment of the Collateral Agent as set forth therein pursuant to the terms
contained therein, the authority of the Collateral Agent to administer A/B
Collateral and DEF Collateral (as each such term is defined therein) pursuant to
the terms thereof, and the authority of the Administrative Agent to administer
Other Collateral (as defined therein) pursuant to the terms thereof. The Lenders
and the L/C Bank hereby agree to be bound by all provisions of the Security
Agreement which may be applicable to the Lenders or the L/C Bank, including
without limitation any indemnification provisions running from the Lenders or
the L/C Bank or any of them to the Collateral Agent contained therein.

        14(k)  Authority to Execute Custodial Agreement.  The Lenders and the 
               ----------------------------------------      
L/C Bank hereby authorize the Administrative Agent to execute the Custodial
Agreement in its capacity as agent for each of the Lenders and the L/C Bank on
behalf of the Lenders and the L/C Bank, and the Lenders and the L/C Bank
specifically consent to the terms thereof, including without limitation the

authority of the Collateral Agent to administer A/B Collateral and DEF
Collateral (as each such term is defined in the Security Agreement) pursuant to
the terms thereof.  The Lenders and the L/C Bank hereby agree to be bound by all
provisions of the Custodial Agreement which may be applicable to the Lenders or
the L/C Bank, including without limitation any indemnification provisions
running from the Lenders or the L/C Bank or any of them to the Collateral Agent
or the Administrative Agent contained therein.

        14(l)  Sharing of Set-Offs.  If any Lender or the L/C Bank (a 
               -------------------                                
"benefitted Party") shall at any time receive any payment of all or part of the
Obligations held by it or receive any collateral in respect thereof (whether
voluntarily or involuntarily, by set-off or otherwise), except pursuant to
Paragraph 7(c) or (d) above or Paragraph 15(i) below, in a greater proportion
than any such payment to and collateral received by any other Lender or the L/C
Bank, if any, in respect of such other Lender's or the L/C Bank's portion of the
Obligations, or interest thereon, such benefitted Party shall purchase for cash
from the other Lenders and the L/C Bank such portion of each such other Lender's
and the L/C Bank's Obligations, or shall provide such other Lenders and the L/C
Bank with the benefits of such collateral, or the proceeds thereof, as shall be
necessary to cause such benefitted Party to share the excess payment or benefits
of such collateral or proceeds ratably with each of the Lenders and the L/C
Bank; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment or
benefits is thereafter recovered from such benefitted Party, such purchase shall
be rescinded, and the purchase price and benefits returned, to the extent of
such recovery but without interest. The Companies agree that each Lender and the
L/C Bank so purchasing a portion of another's Obligations may exercise all
rights of payment (including, without limitation, rights of set-off) with
respect to such portion as fully as if such Lender or the L/C Bank were the
direct holder of such portion.

second proviso to the definition of "Construction Loan" (or, if any such
Construction Loan is noncon-

forming solely due to the sales price or construction cost of any single-family
tract home to be constructed in connection therewith, the sales price or
