  That's for the PCI version; I believe John's board is the SBus
version.  I don't think I have the software for the SBus version, but I
might; I will look.

  For the PCI version, I have v1.3, v2, and v3.  I also have a lot of
notes detailing how to get a SunPCi-IIpro running under Solaris 10, if
that matters to anyone.
