OK, a quickie:

	sun3	- mc68020 Sun system
	sun3x	- mc68030 Sun system (i.e. the 3/80, 3/400)

While we have folded the sun3x port back into sun3 for userland and
distribution purposes, it still needs a separate kernel (i.e. we have two
GENERIC kernels, one for sun3 (default), and one for sun3x (GENERIC3X)
because it is not understood how to make one GENERIC that boots on both).

Partitioning the disk with SunOS ought to work fine. Be sure that if you
move any of the partitions that the results are *all* on cylinder
boundaries (i.e. the label must be self-consistent).

Using the miniroot to newfs the other partitions, and install the tarballs
ought to work fine, too. I recommend that you use the newest boot stuff
from the /usr partition in the snapshot, though I admit I haven't updated
the booter on my Sun 3/60 in ages.
