Was the MD-11 available w/ anything but CF6s? I remember the DC-10-40 w/ JT-9Ds didn't sell very well...

The MD-11 was also available with P&W 4460/4462 series engines. Swissair, Delta, JAL, Thai, China Airlines, World, & KAL went with these engines on their MD-11s.

Are the MD-11s to supplement or replace the 747s?

No they are not going to replace the 747's I don't think. they are really nice though. I like to see them have another McDonnell Douglas aircraft besides their DC-8's
