Sun3/60 are indeed slow. But they work nicely as X display servers.
And they handling clock chipping quite nicely! :-)
I just up graded mine from 20 MHz to 25 Mhz. Now I need to find

:) Sorry, but I just had to share. Clock chipping out machines
is pretty neat.
If anyone is interestested in the procedure email me and I'll write something
