Hey all,
I've recently acquired a SPARCstation 5, so that I can have a NeXT 
machine that's cheaper than the actual black hardware. I have a copy of 
NeXTSTEP 3.3 (?) for RISC (sun and hp).
The SS5 starts to boot from the CDROM, and asks a few of the beginning 
questions (what language, are you sure, etc), and then.... (the 
following is with diagnostic messages enabled)
Loading mach_kernel

Reading NEXTSTEP configuration
Loading /usr/standalone/sparc/sarld
Loading binary for CG6FrameBuffer device driver.
Loading binary for SunLe device driver.
Loading binary for SCSAController device driver.

Anybody have any ideas?
