I would be interested working on a port to the Sun386i, though it
would be a while before I could put time into it.  Let me know if
you decide to get started on it.

It would be more interesting if the machine wasn't such a dog.
I wonder, could one repace the CPU with a 386-40/DX2 (one of
those clock doubler chips)?  Hmmm...
