Do you have these ISO images available for download, or is anyone else
doing the same?  I'd like to make sure that the Sparc community has
access to these older OS versions, to support hobbyist hardware, and
I'm sure that they will become much harder to find, as the years go

I'm pretty sure that something like this was mentioned, either here or
on Geeks-L, at some point, but I can't find the reference.

I have a personal interest in this, as I have an SS2, running SunOS
4.1.4, and an SS20, running Solaris 8.
