From

K. Hurley, on behalf of the Ulysses GRB team, T. Cline, E. Mazets, 
and S. Golenetskii, on behalf of the Konus-WIND GRB team, and D.
Smith, on behalf of the RXTE ASM GRB team, report:

Ulysses and Konus observed this burst at ~33048 s.  Triangulation
gives a Ulysses/KONUS/RXTE error box whose area is ~50 sq. arcmin.
and whose coordinates are:

    RA(2000)                              DEC(2000)
 ERROR BOX CENTER:  11 h 57 m 08.61 s     49 o 44 '  36.00 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 1: 11 h 56 m 19.62 s     49 o 34 '  54.86 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 2: 11 h 56 m 52.98 s     49 o 38 '  27.86 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 3: 11 h 57 m 48.00 s     49 o 51 '  48.00 " 
 ERROR BOX CORNER 4: 11 h 57 m 34.00 s     49 o 53 '  13.00 " 

If NEAR observed this burst, it may be possible to refine
this error box further.
