Phil, I've got your Voyager. I installed Solaris 2.5.1 (trusted) on it,
and I don't notice it being any slower than any other Sparcstation of that
era :-) :-)
I thought about the idea of doing an IDE to SCSI adaptor in it, but didn't
think it would fit.
It was pretty difficult getting it apart to add a battery to the nvram!
