What's the CD-ROM drive in there?  Stock?  I haven't had much luck for  
rescued Suns with stock Toshiba CD-ROM drives; either the tray is  
grinding, or the CD-ROM drive sometimes stops reading stuff.  I replaced  
the CD-ROM drives in my U2, U5, and U60 with something else (Plextor SCSI  
or Lite-ON IDE).
