" Out of curiosity, what was the last update to SunOS 4.1.x?  4.1.4U1?

4.1.4, no u1 afaik.  btw 4.1.4 supports dual supersparcs in ss20s, not
just hypersparcs.  back in '95 i had 2 machines running heavy loads
for 3 months without a crash.

where are you?  i have a ss2 with p/up and memcd i'm not gonna use
again.  knowing at least 2 ss2 clones ran at 50MHz vs the ss2's 40, i
was planning to mod it and see when i mothballed it, even got the
parts...  stripped of drives and video but otherwise complete.
