" From: Mark Benson <markbenson at mac.com>
" I need some help. I have a SPARCstation 10 with a 2.14 PROM in. I  
" just got a stack of RAM and a pair of SM81 CPU modules for it. RAM  
" works fine but the SM81s are not supported until PROM version 2.22.1  
" (thanks to the MBus Rough Guide for that, I was beginning to worry).  
" Does anyone have the facility to supply a 2.22.1 or 2.25 (NOT 2.25R)  
" PROM chip? I believe there is no way of flashing the ROM in these  
" machines from the OpenBoot - am I correct?

yes, they are not flashable, though you can sub ordinary eproms.
