Wrong side of pond for me again *groan*.

I already have a near-waist-high stack of pizza boxen at home, 
but I'd be interested in the IPC and IPX (1 - 2 ea.). However
this could only work out if they could be had *and* smuggled
over here (Germany) for a nominal amount, say if somebody was
assembling a freight container shipment again.

P.S.: Together with der Mouse and Jochen, I worked out a hack
to get the SPARCclassic I was talking about lately netboot off
that loathsome WIntel box. Modifying the OBP to take fixed IP
addresses and using TFTPD32 and TGPNFS on the PC side, we got
it up to a single-user root prompt of NetBSD 3.0 at the VCFe 
last weekend! Finally all that _frustration_ is paying out!
