I am interested in Sun graphics boards.  I have a SPARCstation 5 and a
Sun 3/110 into which I could place boards, but I'd be willing to      
accumulate boards sans chassis if they are 3D graphics subsystems made
by/for Sun.

Its possible you may have an Sbus interface card for the Evans &
Sutherland Freedom series of graphics accelerators.  I could use one of
those and the driver software, if you have them.  I have the
accelerators but no host interface boards or software.

I recently acquired a Sun Model 347 Graphics Tower.  This appears to
be a separate graphics box that attached to a Sun via a thick cable.
I haven't been able to find any information on this yet, so I'd
appreciate any information anyone might have on it.  I can find it
listed on some "for sale" lists on various reseller sites, but I
couldn't find any documentation at sun.com.
