Not an option. I have to support all the hardware I can (it's for a secured
OpenBSD-based OS with apps and custom crypto intended to defeat legal
demands for keys (coming soon to the UK), which boots and runs from CD on
macppc and i386. It should "just work" on most hardware). I usually use
Mac's myself, Sparc's are overpriced now IMO.
Ah well. Thanks anyway.
