I have installed (several times) NetBSD 3.1.1 and 4.0_RC5 on two SunBlade 100 machines. They have 14.5GB disks that I am partitioning as
13.5GB -> / (FFSv1)
1GB -> swap
The file system keeps getting corrupted time after time. Usually, errors already appear while installing. I can reinstall the failed sets an get the machines working, but there are files with their content corrupted and other filesystem errors.
Besides that, the machines seems quite stable and I have been able to use several applications without any problem, so it doesn't look like caused by a defective RAM or other hardware problem, and I have tested it in two different machines with the same result.
I was able to run FreeBSD 6.2 on these machines also without problems
