I'd like to get my Tadpole 3GX sparcbook working again. It works 
and has a 1.2 gig hard drive and 64m of RAM. It currently runs Solaris
2.6 with the Tadpole patches.

Can anyone suggest an operating system for it? 2.6 is a bit "long in tooth",
and it's too slow and short on disk space to compile anything so I would 
prefer something that comes in object code form.

If there was a way to put a wifi card in it I'd really love it. I have
both CARDBUS (3.3v 32bit) and PCMCIA (5 volt 16bit) cards.

Thanks in advance,
