No, it's more my information was 2 years out of date. Not only do they
support it, my coworker has a redhat 6.2 sparc cd already burnt, and I'm
installing as we speak :)

I'll have to check that out too... hell, if I get a bunch of machines, I can
test out lots of os's ! :)
Also, in theory, these things will take anything on an MBus card, right?
Right now, I have the Cypress CY7C605b's, but I should be able to upgrade to
something zippier, right? Any recommendations for someone trying to do this
on a small to nonexistent budget?
