I do indeed have some 10m only gear, some of it coax no less. (This is a
rescue list, right?) The hubs I have are 24-port 10m and they were free.
I had a free 10/100 switch but it turned out to be flaky, so I went back
to the 10m hub.
As for the NFS problem, this Linux server works fine with Sol10 clients,
and Linux clients, some on the other end of a slow VPN link. I only have
problems with Sol9 clients. One of them (an Ultra 2) was a perfect NFS
client two weeks ago when it had Sol10 on it.
I am fairly well convinced that I have missed something in the
configuration of Sol9 on my Ultra 2.
I see RPC retransmissions and dupes that do not show up with any NFS
clients except Sol9.
