Yep, it's a SPARCstation 20 clone, but it takes regular narrow SCSI rather
than SCA disks. Nice little machine - I have one with a pair of SM61s

As others have mentioned, it'll run any Solaris that supports sun4m
architecture machines (so pretty much anything from SunOS 4.1.3 or so up to
and including Solaris 9). Personally, I'd run NetBSD on it.
