For those of you with SPARCbooks who want to run something more recent than
Solaris 2.6 (or is 7 supported?), NetBSD 3.0_BETA (hopefully to be released
at the end of July) includes support for most of the hardware on them.
There is support for accelerated video on the P9000 (X11 - not sure about
the console), power management, PCMCIA and the sound hardware (not sure if
the sound support will make it into 3.0 - think it's only in -current at
the moment).

Don't have one myself (still looking!), just thought I'd let y'all know.
