     1.  AMOUNT AND TERMS OF LOAN.
         ------------------------ 

          1.1  Loan.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and
               ----                                                             
in reliance on the representations, warranties and covenants of Borrower in this
Agreement, Lender shall loan Borrower the principal amount of One Million Five
Hundred Thousand Dollars ($1,500,000) (this "Loan").  Borrower's indebtedness to
Lender under the Loan Documents will be evidenced by a Secured Promissory Note
executed by Borrower substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the
                                                                  ---------

               --------                                                      
interest on the unpaid principal of this Loan (except as provided in Section
1.5) will accrue at a rate equal to six and twenty-three hundredths percent
(6.23%) per annum.  Interest will continue to accrue until the date on which all
amounts owing under the Loan Documents have been repaid in full.

          1.3  Security.  Borrower's indebtedness to Lender under the Loan
               --------                                                   
Documents will be secured by Borrower's pledge of certain shares of Lender
equity securities (the "Pledged Shares") in accordance with the terms of a stock
pledge agreement, dated of even date herewith, substantially in the form
attached as Exhibit B (the "Stock Pledge Agreement").  Borrower shall
            ---------                                                
immediately submit to Lender upon issuance all Lender equity securities that
Borrower acquires pursuant to: (a) Borrower's exercise of options to purchase
Lender equity securities under Lender's 1997 Equity Incentive Plan, 2000 Stock
Incentive Plan or any subsequent or similar stock option plan of Lender, (b)

purchase agreement, or (c) any other similar employee benefit plan of Lender.

          1.4  Maturity of Loan.  The unpaid principal amount of this Loan and

all unpaid interest accrued thereon, together with any other related fees,
expenses or costs, will be immediately due and payable to Lender in full on the
date (the "Maturity Date") that is the

principal amount and interest due under this Loan becomes due and payable under
Section 2.1.

          1.5  Forgiveness of Loan.  On each of August 17, 2001, 2002, 2003 and

become due and payable under Section 2.1 on or before such date, Lender shall
forgive $375,000 of the principal amount of this Loan and all unpaid interest
accrued thereon as of such date.

          1.6  Tax.  For each year that Lender forgives a portion of the Loan

pursuant to Section 1.5, Lender will also pay Borrower, on December 31 of each
such year, a cash amount equal to Borrower's tax liability for such Loan
forgiveness.  Borrower will be responsible for any other tax liability it incurs
in connection with this Loan and its repayment.

          1.7  Prepayment.  Borrower may prepay the unpaid principal and
               ----------                                               
interest due under this Loan at any time, without penalty, in whole or in part
in amounts of at least Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000).  Each prepayment will be
applied as follows: (a) first to the payment of accrued interest, and (b)
second, to the extent that the amount of such prepayment exceeds the amount of
all such accrued interest, to the payment of principal on this Loan.  Borrower
also agrees that, until this Loan is paid in full, Borrower shall: (i) if no
default event has occurred under the Loan Documents and is continuing,
immediately apply fifty percent (50%) of the net before tax proceeds from any
sale by Borrower of the Pledged Shares, or (ii) if a default event has occurred
and is continuing, immediately apply one hundred percent (100%) of the net
before tax proceeds from any sale by Borrower of the Pledged Shares, to pay down
this Loan in accordance with this Agreement.

action on the part of Lender or any other holder of the Note: (a) on the date

with Lender for any reason other than termination without cause by Lender (as
"cause" is defined in Lender's employment offer letter to Borrower dated June
29, 2000 (the "Offer Letter")); or (b) upon Borrower's failure to apply the
appropriate proceeds of any sale of Pledged Shares to pay down this Loan in
accordance with Section 1.7.

          2.2  Default.  Borrower will be deemed to be in default of this Loan
               -------

Agreement will inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the respective
successors and assigns of the parties, including any subsequent holders of the
Note; provided, however, that Borrower may not assign or delegate any of its
      --------  -------                                                     
rights or obligations hereunder or under any other Loan Document or any interest

               ----------------------------                              
express or implied, is intended to confer upon any third party any rights,
remedies, obligations, or liabilities under or by reason of this Agreement,
except as expressly provided in this Agreement.

          3.4  Construction.  This Agreement and its exhibits are the result of

issuance.  All such Secured Party equity securities shall be identified on
                                                                          
Schedule 1 or on an Addendum to Schedule 1 upon their issuance; and
----------                      ----------                         

     WHEREAS, Pledgor is the legal and beneficial owner of the shares of capital
stock or other equity securities identified on such Schedule 1 or addenda as
                                                    ----------              
being owned by Pledgor (collectively, the "Pledged Shares"); and

     WHEREAS, it is a condition precedent under the Loan Agreement to making the
Loan that Pledgor shall agree to make the pledges contemplated by this
Agreement;

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises set forth in this
Agreement and to induce Secured Party to make the Loan, Pledgor hereby agrees
with Secured Party as follows:

     1.  STOCK PLEDGE PROVISIONS.
         ----------------------- 

          1.1  Pledge.  Pledgor hereby pledges to Secured Party, and grants to
               ------                                                         
Secured Party a security interest in, all of Pledgor's, right, title, and
interest in and to the following (the "Pledged Collateral"): (a) all of the
Pledged Shares; (b) the certificates, if any, representing the Pledged Shares;
and (c) all dividends, cash, instruments and other property or proceeds, from
time to time received, receivable or otherwise distributed in respect of or in
exchange for any or all of the Pledged Shares.

 
          1.2  Security Interest.  This Agreement secures, and the Pledged 
               -----------------     
Collateral is security for, the full and prompt payment by Pledgor when due
(whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) of, and the
performance by Pledgor of, all of Pledgor's current and future obligations under
this Agreement and each of the Loan Documents to which Pledgor is a party,
including without limitation principal, interest, fees, and expenses (including
any interest, fees, or expenses that, but for the provisions of the Bankruptcy
code, would have accrued). The security interest in the Pledged Collateral
created by this Agreement will continue, and the provisions of this Agreement
will remain in full force and effect, until the termination of this Agreement
pursuant to Section 1.7.

          1.3  Representations and Warranties.  Pledgor hereby represents and
               ------------------------------                                
warrants to the Secured Party that, as of the date each of the Pledged Shares is
issued: (a) Pledgor is the legal and beneficial owner of the Pledged Collateral
free and clear of any lien, and (b) Pledgor has the right to pledge and grant to
the Secured Party a security interest in the Pledged Collateral.

          1.4  Transfers and Other Liens.  Pledgor agrees that Pledgor will not:
               -------------------------                                        
(a) sell or otherwise dispose of, or grant any option or warrant with respect
to, any of the Pledged Collateral except as permitted by the Loan Agreement, or
(b) create or permit to exist any lien upon or with respect to any of the
Pledged Collateral, except for the lien created pursuant to this Agreement.

          1.5  Further Assurances.  Pledgor agrees to promptly execute and 
               ------------------        
deliver all further instruments and documents, and take all further action that
may be necessary or desirable, or that Secured Party may reasonably request, in
order to perfect and protect the lien granted or purported to be granted hereby
or to enable Secured Party to exercise and enforce its rights and remedies with
respect to any Pledged Collateral. Pledgor agrees to defend the title to the
Pledged Collateral and Secured Party's lien on the Pledged Collateral against
the claim of any other person and to maintain and preserve such lien until
indefeasible payment in full of all obligations.

          1.6  Secured Party May Perform.  If Pledgor fails to perform any
               -------------------------                                  
agreement contained in this Agreement, Secured Party may itself perform, or
cause performance of such agreement, and the expenses of Secured Party incurred
in connection therewith shall be payable by Pledgor under Section 3.1 and
constitute obligations secured by this Agreement.

          1.7  Termination of Security Interest.  This Agreement, and the
               --------------------------------                          
security interests created or granted by this Agreement, shall automatically
terminate and be released on the date at which the Loan has been fully and
finally paid in cash (or forgiven by Secured Party in accordance with the Loan
Agreement).  Upon any release of the security interest created by this Agreement
in any of the Pledged Collateral pursuant to this Section 1.7, Secured Party
(without recourse upon, or any representation or warranty whatsoever by, Secured
Party) shall promptly:

            (a) return, transfer and deliver to Pledgor all certificates,
  instruments and other property held by Secured Party pursuant to this
  Agreement representing or 

                                      -2-

 
  evidencing such Pledged Collateral as shall not have been sold or otherwise
  applied pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, all without recourse upon, or
  representation or warranty whatsoever by, Secured Party, except that the same
  shall be free and clear of any claims, liens or encumbrances created by or in
  respect of Secured Party, and at the cost and expense of Pledgor, and

            (b)  execute and deliver to Pledgor such instruments as may be
  reasonably requested by Pledgor acknowledging the release of such security
  interest with respect to such Pledged Collateral.


     2.  DELIVERY AND POSSESSION OF PLEDGED COLLATERAL.
         --------------------------------------------- 

          2.1  Delivery of Pledged Collateral.  All certificates or instruments,
               ------------------------------                                   
if any, representing or evidencing the Pledged Collateral shall be issued to and
held by or on behalf of Secured Party pursuant to this Agreement and shall be in
suitable form for transfer by delivery, or shall be accompanied by duly executed
instruments of transfer or assignment in blank, all in form and substance
satisfactory to Secured Party.

          2.2  Rights to Vote, Receive Dividends from and Sell (No Default).  
               ------------------------------------------------------------ 
As long as no event of default shall have occurred under the Loan Agreement and
be continuing:

               (a) Pledgor shall be entitled to exercise any and all voting and
  other consensual rights pertaining to the Pledged Collateral or any part
  thereof for any purpose not inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement or
  any other Loan Documents;

               (b) Pledgor shall be entitled to receive and retain (subject to
  any lien thereon in favor of Secured Party) any and all dividends or
  distributions paid in respect of the Pledged Collateral, other than any and
  all:

                   (i)    dividends paid or payable other than in cash in
     respect of, and instruments and other property received receivable or
     otherwise distributed in respect of, or in exchange for, any Pledged
     Collateral;

                    (ii)  dividends and other distributions paid or payable in
     cash in respect of any Pledged Shares in connection with a partial or total
     liquidation or dissolution or in connection with a reduction of capital,
     capital surplus or paid-in-surplus; and

                    (iii) cash paid, payable or otherwise distributed in
     redemption of, or in exchange for, any Pledged Collateral;

all of which shall be forthwith delivered to Secured Party;

                                      -3-

 
            (c) Secured Party shall execute and deliver (or cause to be executed
  and delivered) to Pledgor all such proxies and other instruments as Pledgor
  may reasonably request for the purpose of enabling Pledgor to exercise the
  voting and other rights which it is entitled to exercise pursuant to Section
  2.2(a) and to receive the dividends or distributions which it is authorized to
  receive and retain pursuant to Section 2.2(b); and

            (d) Pledgor shall have the power to require Secured Party to sell
  any or all of the Pledged Shares in an arms length transaction through a
  securities brokerage firm, provided that such sale complies with and does not
  violate any applicable law, and further provided that Pledgor shall pay fifty
  percent (50%) of the net before tax proceeds from any such sale directly to
  Secured Party to pay down the Loan in accordance with the Loan Agreement.

          2.3  Adjustments.  Secured Party shall have the right at any time to
               -----------                                                    
exchange certificates representing or evidencing any of the Pledged Collateral
for certificates of smaller or larger denominations.

          2.4  Reasonable Care.  Secured Party shall be deemed to have exercised
               ---------------                                                  
reasonable care in the custody and preservation of the Pledged Collateral in its
possession if the Pledged Collateral is accorded treatment substantially equal
to that which Secured Party accords its own property, it being understood that
Secured Party shall not have any responsibility for: (a) ascertaining or taking
action with respect to calls, conversions, exchanges, maturities, tenders or
other matters relative to any Pledged Collateral, whether or not Secured Party
has or is deemed to have knowledge of any such matter, or (b) taking any
necessary steps to preserve rights against any person with respect to any
Pledged Collateral.

     3.   ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS UPON DEFAULT.
          ---------------------------------- 

          3.1  Remedies Upon Default.  The rights and remedies granted to
               ---------------------                                     
Secured Party by this Article 3 will be in addition to all the rights, powers
and remedies of Secured Party under the Loan Documents.  All such rights and
remedies will be cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies
provided by law or otherwise.  If any event of default under the Loan Agreement
shall have occurred and be continuing:

            (a) Secured Party may exercise in respect of the Pledged Collateral,
  in addition to other rights and remedies provided for in this Agreement or
  otherwise available to it, all the rights and remedies of a secured party
  after default under the California Commercial Code or any other applicable law
  in effect in the State of California at that time, and Secured Party may also,
  without notice except as specified below, sell the Pledged Collateral or any
  part thereof in one or more parcels at public or private sale, at any
  exchange, broker's board or at any office of Secured Party or elsewhere, for
  cash, on credit or for future delivery, and upon such other terms as Secured
  Party may deem commercially reasonable.  Pledgor agrees that, to the extent
  notice of sale shall be required by law, at least ten days' notice to Pledgor
  of the time and place of any public sale or the time after which any private
  sale is to be made shall constitute reasonable notification.  Secured Party
  shall not be obligated to make any sale 

                                      -4-

 
  of Pledged Collateral regardless of notice of sale having been given. Secured
  Party may adjourn any public or private sale from time to time by announcement
  at the time and place fixed therefor, and such sale may, without further
  notice, be made at the time and place to which it was so adjourned. Pledgor
  hereby waives any claims against Secured Party arising by reason of the fact
  that the price at which any Pledged Collateral may have been sold at such a
  private sale was less than the price which might have been obtained at a
  public sale, even if Secured Party accepts the first offer received and does
  not officer such Pledged Collateral to more than one offeree. With respect to
  Pledged Collateral consisting of securities registered under the Securities
  Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), Secured Party will comply with
  applicable securities laws in connection with any foreclosure sale.

               (b) Pledgor recognizes that by reason of certain prohibitions
  contained in the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, Secured
  Party may be compelled, with respect to any sale of all or any part of the
  Pledged Collateral, to limit purchasers to those which will agree, among other
  things, to acquire such securities for their own account, for investment, and
  not with a view to the distribution or resale.  Pledgor acknowledges and
  agrees that any such sale may result in prices and other terms less favorable
  to the seller than if such sale were a public sale without such restrictions
  and, notwithstanding such circumstances, agrees that any such sale shall be
  deemed to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner.  Secured Party
  shall be under no obligation to delay the sale of any of the Pledged
  Collateral for the period of time necessary to permit Pledgor to register such
  securities for public sale under the Securities Act, or under applicable state
  securities laws, even if Pledgor would agree to do so.

               (c) In the event of a sale of Pledged Collateral in accordance
  with the provisions of this Section 3.1, notwithstanding anything to the
  contrary contained in Section 2.2(d) or elsewhere in this Agreement, all of
  the net before tax proceeds from any such sale shall be applied by Secured
  Party, or paid directly to Secured Party, to pay down the Loan in accordance
  with the Loan Agreement.

          3.2  Rights in Pledged Collateral Upon Default.  Upon the occurrence
               -----------------------------------------                      
and during the continuance of an event of default under the Loan Agreement:

               (a) upon notice by Secured Party to Pledgor, all rights of
  Pledgor to exercise the voting and other consensual rights which it would
  otherwise be entitled to exercise pursuant to Section 2.2(a) shall cease, and
  all such rights shall thereupon become vested in Secured Party who shall
  thereupon have the sole right to exercise such voting and other consensual
  rights;

               (b) all rights of Pledgor to receive the dividends or
  distributions which it would otherwise be authorized to receive and retain
  pursuant to Section 2.2(b) shall cease, and all such rights shall thereupon
  become vested in Secured Party who shall thereupon have the sole right to
  receive and hold as Pledged Collateral such dividends or distributions;

                                      -5-

 
               (c) All dividends or distributions which are received by Pledgor
  contrary to the provisions of Section 3.2(b) shall be received in trust for
  the benefit of Secured Party, shall be segregated from other property or funds
  of Pledgor and shall be forthwith delivered to Secured Party;

               (d) Pledgor shall, if necessary to permit Secured Party to
  exercise the voting and other rights which it may be entitled to exercise
  pursuant to Section 2.2(a) and to receive all dividends and distributions
  which it may be entitled to receive under Section 2.2(b), execute and deliver
  to Secured Party, from time to time and upon written notice of Secured Party,
  appropriate proxies and other instruments as Secured Party may reasonably
  request; and

               (e) Secured Party shall have the right to the extent permitted
  under any applicable law, at any time in its discretion and without notice to
  Pledgor, to transfer to or to register in its name or in the name of any of
  its nominees any or all of the Pledged Collateral.

The foregoing shall not in any way limit Secured Party's power and authority
granted pursuant to Section 3.3.

          3.3  Secured Party Appointed Attorney-in-Fact and Proxy.  Subject to
               --------------------------------------------------             
Section 3.1, Pledgor hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints Secured Party
and any officer or agent of Secured Party, effective upon the occurrence and
during the continuance of an event of default under the Loan Agreement, with
full power of substitution, as its true and lawful attorney-in-fact and proxy
with full irrevocable power and authority in the place and stead of Pledgor and
in the name of Pledgor or in its own name, from time to time in Secured Party's
discretion, for the purpose of carrying out the terms of this Agreement, to take
any and all appropriate action and to execute and deliver any and all documents
and instruments which Secured Party may deem necessary or advisable to
accomplish the purposes of this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of
the foregoing, Pledgor hereby gives Secured Party the power and right, on behalf
of Pledgor, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an event of
default under the Loan Agreement, to receive, endorse and collect all
instruments made payable to Pledgor representing any dividend or distribution in
respect of the Pledged Collateral or any part thereof, to give full discharge
for the same, and to vote or grant any consent in respect of the Pledged Shares
authorized by Section 3.1.  Pledgor hereby ratifies, to the extent permitted by
law, all that any said attorney shall lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue
hereof.  This power, being coupled with an interest, is irrevocable until, and
shall automatically terminate upon, the termination of this Agreement pursuant
to Section 1.7.

future occasion.
