Allegedly Solaris 2.6 and 7 (and even 8?) can be hacked to run, but not
with SM100 modules (see
http://www.sunhelp.org/pipermail/rescue/2000-April/005324.html and James's
comments). Can also patch up SunOS 4.1.4 from what I'm told. If you want
SMP and non-Solaris, Linux is going to be your best bet. Don't know how
much any of the freebies support VME.
