Are you sure? According to Tadpole's website (the Y2K status page), it says the last
version of Solaris ported to this machine is 2.3 Tadpoe edtion.
I had a copy somewhere, but can't find it now.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking.
So, you can't even run Mac OS 7.1, err, I mean Solaris 2.3 (same thing, both buggy, right?)
just as CLI on it? I really don't need a GUI, especially on only 32MB of RAM.
