If I had a job, I'd offer to buy it off ya if it didn't work, since I *do*
have a Tatung U2 here.

If it's Ex[05]00 then definitely no. It's like the difference between
FCPGA and Slot 1 in the PC world, except that I know of no UltraSPARC
"Slocket" adapters....

You want modules in the X1188-X1194 range only. X1188A is 167, X1193A is
400 for U2 (X1194A is 400 for E250, not sure what the difference is, maybe
FSB-equivalent?). Anything in the middle *should* work.
