I have one that I used with a couple of Ultra 2s and cluster software. I 
used Solaris 10, and I seem to remember that there were some Solaris 9 
files required, and some manual editing of a system file to make it work.

I believe I have a tar file around somewhere with the parts if you are 

I also had a power supply failure after replacing the original 2G disks 
with 4 and 9G disks, but that could just be coincidence.
