" clean install of sol 2.6 with a root account with no password (yeah)

" Should I stick with Sol 2.6 or is there something better ? ( I might

2.6 is pretty good; i ran a ss2/weitek with 128M for years on it.  i
think you'll want more ram for s8 or s9 to perform well though, but
that's getting to be pretty cheap on ebay.

" Looking on the web there are faster/multi processor options available - 
" does anyone have any old mbus
" cpus ?

they're getting pretty cheap on ebay too, and obp 2.25r even show up
fairly often.

if you're hardware oriented, you can burn your own 2.25 from craig
