  Hi all,

  I just broke a promise to my wife (and myself). I promised to collect
  Suns no
  bigger than then SparcCenter 1000. But when you come across a 3/470,
  how can
  you not rescue it from the garbage heap?

  It has a 501 1550 CPU board with a 501 1532 cg6 framebuffer (quite
  special I
  guess - it also comes with keyboard, mouse and colour monitor).
  Theres a 501
  1217 SCSI controller, a 501 1102 RAM board (8MB) and a board marked
  Is this a memory caching board? It has a bunch of LEDs on it.

  The system supposedly does not boot up (havent tried yet). The boards
  been pulled out and put back again, not necessarily in the same slot.
  Is there
  something I need to know about slot locations for these board? I
  remember some quirks with other Suns in this respect.
