[rescue] Looking for copy of "Sunmos" or "OSF/1 AD"

Hi Folks

I already know this is a very very very long shot but here goes. 

Background: I have a single Intel Paragon board, SCSI/Network/Serial
Console all in one, so its a bit more than a node or standard service
board. I am looking to power up standalone and hopefully get a monitor
rom prompt of some sort out of the serial port. The available hardware
suggests and reading suggests this is a reasonable expectation.

I have also found information (yet to power up and confirm with tcpdump)
that indicates that this board will TFTP boot if politely asked to do

The objective is to boot  the boad via TFTP. femtoParagon anyone ;-) 

What I am looking for is a copy of "Sunmos" to see if indeed I can
tftpboot the light weight kernel onto a standalone board....OK so OSF/1
AD would do also (hence the subject) but everything I have read suggests
that this would be overkill..

before I started the project (or obtained the board) is looks like
Sunmos used to be available at


however link death as stolen that form me.....

If anyone can help that would be greatly appreciated.
