Barry - Yup - I installed BSD on it and its was quite slow, expectedly...
so I decided to see about solaris and then learned of the untimely demise
of the ability to download Solaris... but I did find the docs server and
looked up the hardware docs - and yes 7 supported the SS2... so I figured
why not give it a try..

Only problem is that now my Sun addiction is back in full force... not very
good in my wifes eyes, let me tell you... :)
