Interesting.  I shall have to try that.  I assume the 333s and 360s came
out well before Solaris 9?  For whatever reason, I was just completely
unable to convince the standalone updater to work on my U5 when I wanted
to upgrade to a 360mhz proc.

At this point, I'm almost thinking of getting a pair of U5s the way I
want them, and just swapping disks with the U5s I want upgraded, then
giving the old ones away.
