I wouldn't care to upgrade the CPU, but taking it to two gigs of RAM appeals
to me - not sure what I'd use it for, but it seems like a reasonable machine

A quick troll of eBay points out I could probably take it to 2 gigs (4x 512M
PC133 ECC non-registered) for about $20-25.

My previous attempt to install Solaris 10 failed due to DVD problems, I used a
known-good DVD and it is installing as we speak.

I'm curious, where are folks going for freeware? Sunfreeware is now a
subscription-based service, and back in the day I just used the software on
Sun's companion CD, something similar would be great...

Thanks in advance,
