	IIRC I had a 3/150 and a 3/160, with an 'sc' and 'si'
	respectively, and both were straight VME cards - though the 'sc'
	was a 6U card in a 6U->9U converter. (I cannot remember the 'si').

	As for worth - I'd certainly get one of them to boot NetBSD
	diskless and see how it goes!

	For reference you should also be able to use sun4 VME cards.
