I did a little Googling. It sounds like it. I wonder if Sun used any
kind of 32-bit expansion bus, though?

ISA wasn't good on a 386, but it was a major limitation on a 486. An
ex of mine had a 486SX PC with only ISA slots, no local bus at all --
they did exist. I put 32MB of RAM in it, and a 486 DX2/66 chip, but it
was a dog of a PC and there was little else I could do to improve it.
