have 4.0.3 that they could supply to me in some form? Or is
there a better alternative for sun 2's with low ram (sun 1/100U is
apparently very hardware equivalent to the earliest sun 2's, at least
from a software perspective). Perhaps there is a X11 version that might
run acceptably from a sun with 2Meg of ram.
The Sun 1/100U does not have any way to connect peripherals such as
hard drives, so the unit will have to be booted from the network.
I guess its almost time for me to brush up on tftp protocol, assuming
I can find some OS to run on this computer.
I might be able to do some arm twisting and get a SunOS 0.98 tape. A guy I
know (and first generation Sun head) has a working machine he picked up at
a hamfest a few years ago.
That would be great if you could pull it off. I've given up on trying to
get SunOS 4.x, and my next attempt is to restore a sun 3/60 and
try to install SunOS 3.x which can then hopefully be used as a
boot server for the 1/100U. But i'd much rather run an earlier
version of SunOS as possible, mainly due to the memory constraints.
