amendments thereto filed on October 22, 1997, November 21, 1997, November 26,
1997, December 9, 1997 and an amendment to be filed today (the "Registration

     We have made such legal and factual examination and inquiry as we have
deemed advisable for the rendering of this opinion. In making our examination we
have assumed the genuiness of all signatures, the authenticity of all documents
submitted to us as originals and the conformity to all authentic original
documents of all documents submitted to us as copies. Based on the foregoing, it
is our opinion that the Guarantor has authorized the issuance of the Guaranty
and when the Guaranty has been approved, executed, authenticated and delivered
in accordance with the terms of the Indenture and when the Senior Notes have
been paid for in the manner and at the price set forth in the Registration
Statement, the Guaranty will constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation
of the Guarantor, enforceable against the Guarantor in accordance with its
terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent, conveyance,
moratorium, reorganization or other similar laws affecting creditors' rights or
debtors' obligations and to general principles of equity.

     The opinions expressed herein are rendered solely for your benefit in 
connection with the transactions contemplated hereby. The opinions expressed 
herein may not be used or relied upon by any other person nor may this letter or
any copies hereof be furnished to a third party, filed with a governmental 
agency, quoted, cited or otherwise referred to without our prior written 
consent, except as provided below.

     We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to the 
Registration Statement.

                                        Very truly yours,

                                        /s/ Hunton & Williams
