I am pretty sure I have some QIC carts with SunOS 4.0.x on it and I've
also got a version of SunOS 4.0.? on floppies. Lemme look tomorrow and
see if I have an extra QIC tape you can have.

It looks like the last version of SunOS that I can run on a Sun 1/100U

version. It looks like I can only add 2 ram boards, and all I have
are 1Meg ram boards...
Does anyone 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 dont suppose anyone has a sun multibus 4Meg memory board they would
be willing to trade?
