If you mean in that they operate without access to the VMEbus, yes
I understand that too. After all, I am using a 4/600 mainboard in a
4/110 chassis running Solaris 8.... don't need VME access. However
is there a Solaris release that officially supports 4/600 without
VME access ? I don't think so... I think Sun removed "support" for
the 4/600 when they removed support for VME.
