I have an Ultra 60 in the basement sitting idle... It's a dual 366/4,
1GB of RAM, 9GB (I think...) disk no cd-rom, Creator 3D (which I
thought was damaged but appears to work now). It will probably never
be used as an Ultra 60 again...(though I did use it to format disks
on my fibre channel array). I think one CPU is bad. I will probably
use the parts to make a rocking E220R. It was free... I was
scavenging hardware from the basement of the bank my company works
for... I signed out a few of my machines from the graveyard. (RS/
6000 F50, Ultra 60, Proliant 6400R)
