Hope somebody grabs those... as you can drop a 4/600MP board in there,
a couple sun4m procs, and with some trickery, run at least Solaris 8
on there (I haven't tried 9 yet, but I suspect it will work just as well,
as long as you know how to get it to bypass the check for unsupported

Not to mention, any Sun VME setup you throw in that will run something
like NetBSD or OpenBSD nicely.... or an old Classic SunOS 4.X box !
