i too have a 'ss2+' with 128M. mighty slow these days but it ain't

i'd love it - but my budget is -very- tight, and this isn't even a
a 10sx with two 8M vsimms, an avb modified to -not- need an sbus slot,
and four tx4+ - a six-headed sparc!

i run s2.6 though. i still have 4.1.4 but haven't touched it since my
original sun0424s croaked many moons ago. i now have a pair of 4G
hawks - and i mirror my root with ods.
"BTW2: OpenBSD performs marvelously on Sun4c hardware. Until I upgraded

*bsd's what i'd run if i ever abandoned solaris2. i don't stay up
that long though - i cron the sun tool to scan for patches and report,
every month, and run another script by hand to fetch all the patches i
don't already have. every six months, i have a patch party.
