My Ultra 10 (same IDE controller--same motherboard, actually) has a 120GB
disk. However, I boot it from a 20GB disk, I think. I don't doubt that
it could boot from the larger disk, but I've honestly never tried it.
That plus OpenBSD and an Intel 10/100 Ethernet card (thanks to hme sucking
under obsd/sparc64) makes for cheap, fast, and yummy NFS goodness.
However, my near-transcendental experience with Solaris kicking much ass
this week may yet cause me to remove OpenBSDs from the equation. OMG
but JumpStart is the neatest thing I've ever seen ANYWHERE.
 But not terribly reliable, since the 120GB disk isn't mirrored. Oh
well, that's what tape is for.
