[SunRescue] ss5 170 second cpu question

The SS5 will not take a second CPU. It's a one CPU box by design. You would
have to get a Sparc 10 or 20 if you want a desktop machine that supports
multiple CPU's.

A 5/170 is still a pretty spiffy box, though <grin>.

Howdy all, a quick question for you.

I have an ss5, with the 170 mhz cpu. 
I am looking to add a second cpu, but have not only no idea what the part
number of the correct cpu woudl be,
but I also dont know which cpu's are supported in the machine as a second

If anyone knows which cpu it would use, I would appreciate this info. 

Also, if anyone has info on where they can be obtained, and how much they
cost, I would appreciate it.


(note, if anyone has one of these they wish to sell, I will not be in a
position to buy for 3 weeks, so a really fast sale would be out.)
