[rescue] Sun X2200 M2 firmware

Hi all,

would anybody on the list have the latest (LOM and BIOS) firmware CD around
for the Sun Fire X2200 M2?

My workplace (university research group) just was given one of those from a
rather unlikely side - a student group had bought it on a grant 10 years
ago, and we had hosted it. The original admins graduated and went away, the
group "forgot" that they had hardware somewhere (probably not even giving a
thought to "what" served their web pages - electrical engineers...). In the
end, the LAMP installation got cracked, and I had to send a stern reminder
on how being a guest came with obligations. They moved the installed
software to a VM, and found it easier to just donate the Sun than find out
where it lodged, and pick it up. Nice machine, too.

Of course, as a uni institute, we would not even dream of getting the
support contract that Oracle appears to expect us to sign in exchange for a
bios update for a 12 yo machine...

The X2200 fails to boot NetBSD with an ACPI error, and I figured the latest
bios might hellp here.

Any pointers will be much appreciated... I could make space for an upload,
if needed.
