You'll be able to run SunPC card (486-class) but a SunPCi requires PCI
slots, not sbus.  I used to have one, but I'd have no idea where to look
for it.

I miss the 4/x30 systems.  A 4/330 was my first Sun workstation.  I shared
a SPARCstation 10 with a coworker a couple years before that, but that
scavenged 4/330 was my first dedicated Sun workstation.  For a while it
was both my workstation and my chair.

I have maybe 100 cg6-compatible cards here (GX, GX+, TGX, TGX+) in a big
box on my workbench.  If you'd like one for the cost[0] of shipping,
please send me your physical address (and card revision, if you care) in a
private email.  I may or may-not have a bw2 card around here somewhere,
but I'd have to hunt for it.

[0] $5 in the continental US.  Most of the GX-series cards will fit
     into a "Flat rate small" box.
