I have the old shoebox, but its on a machine that is my
#2 DNS server and can't afford to give it up currently. That running
with the motherboard that *MIGHT* have troubles doing NFS, but the 12M.
I've got a 4M system (looking to expand to 12M) at home.

The ability to DITCH SunOs. Besides its fun to play on. And I
