Must have been OpenBSD - FreeBSD doesn't run on 32-bit sparcs (only 
ultras are supported). Both OpenBSD and NetBSD run well on sun4c 
machines - I've heard that Linux support has been a bit spotty 
(although I don't have any first hand experience). Debian seems to
be the best supported of the Linux distros that still support 32-bit
