[rescue] Rescue - Ultra 1

If anyone has any Sparc 2 boxes they are scrapping, the additional 
case fan from a Sparc 2 will (sorta) fit in the place of the cpu fan
on a fan equipped Ultra 1.  You will need to mate up the wires, and
ditch the plastic shield, but the fan will then mount there... I think
it is higher quality fan than those used on the cpu, and moves a bit
more air too.

Alternately, if you can find someone with a dead U1 that used the heatsink
you could probably rob the heatsink (from a fanless model) and put that

I have a Ultra 1 here too that had a noisy dying fan... I haven't finished
the swap yet (as I didn't need the box), but have all the parts in place to
put an extra Sparc 2 chassis cooling fan in it's place but was hoping to
find a dead U1 to steal a heatsink from instead....

You could also probably steal a fan from a pentium/pentiumII/pentim pro/
athlon cooler... but you better do it from a high quality one or you'll
be facing the same problem in a much shorter timeframe.
