I have a few questions, mostly hardware related. I'm pretty new to Sun HW so
plese excuse the ignorance.
1) I have two boxes at my disposal, a SS10 and a SS5. all things being equal
(memory, etc.), which is faster? it seems to me that there are a variety of
different processor speeds that were available. How do I determine which one
each machine has?
2) Each machine seems to use a different type of memory. The SS5 memory appears
to be normal DRAM, while the SS10 is a rather tall DRAM that I haven't
encountered before. What is this correct type of memory to use in each machine?
3) The SS5 does not have a network card. Can the card from the SS10 be swapped
if it turns out that the 5 is faster or are there differences in the bus that
would prevent this.
4) Lastly, I am using CAD software on the SS10 right now that gobbles up memory.
I usually end up running out and swapping large amounts of memory. Closing the
program does not seem to free up memory so how can I do this manually?
