I don't currently have much (portable) stuff for which to trade...(rummage

You have any use (or anyone else, for that matter) for an sbus fddi card?
I'm guessing, but I think it's a 605-1494, but that's just a guess from
some antiquated purchase order records.  The part number breaks out to
"FDDI/S SAS 3.0 fiber, hw/sw assembly."

<PetPeeve>  How freaking hard would it be to put a frimpin' IDENTIFIABLE
PART NUMBER on these condemned things?!?!?!?!
Those little bar-code stickers with part numbers encoded on them just don't
cut it in heavy traffic, or after lots of dust and heat.  They peel off and
are lost all too soon.  </PetPeeve>

Anybody need one?  I need another CPU for this sparcstation 20, and RAM.
Will trade only, no cash (excepting postage, which ought to be pretty cheap).

I might also have some Sparcstation 5 stuff laying around, nothing complete
though, just odds and ends like CPU's and such.
