The early "Netra" systems were just headless boxes with a cruddy admin
GUI installed and voice prompts (that played over the system speaker)
telling you when it was booted, ready to shut down, etc.

Feel free to mark out the "Netra" logo with a Sharpie and throw a 
normal Solaris load on there.. its what everyone I know, did. 8-)
