I thought I heard a "Magnus Abrante" say:

That one is good. I've also found a "new" one at
http://www.sunstuff.org/hardware/partnumbers/ that has the categories
listed and a lot of parts that the old hwref doesn't have, like Ross
processors, ultrasparc parts, etc....

I've never needed to go beyond 9 numbers, like 501-2055-04 ... on the
600MP series, there are some restrictions on earlier revs of the board. I
can't remember them offhand; finally moved toward the non-VME sun4m
platforms so I haven't bothered with my two 600MP boards lately other than
to swipe an NVRAM.

Hope this helps,
