Looks like 2.1 through 2.4 support sun4. The Solaris FAQ says 2.5 dropped
sun4 support. It was platform based, not bus based. 2.6 (and allegedly 7)
could be forced to use a 600MP, which I *think* was the one non-sun4 VME
sparc system sold retail by Sun (not counting the cycle sun4m and any
other oem/sme boards).

Nope. Still west coast for now. I think even NetBSD gave up on this
particular machine. Although I'd have to look to see the model number.
It's a narrow dual r4400/133 machine that did take NT 3.51 quite happily.
I might take it to the swap next month.
