Back in the 1.2 days, I was sent a file purporting to be a driver for
the sc for Sprite.  Using that as hardware doco, I wrote a driver.

It has never worked properly for me.  But you're welcome to use it as a
starting point if you like.  I'll be happy to send you a copy....

I was doing the sc work on a -3/260.  However, it's been sitting idle,
turned off, for a long time now (too much of a space heater, not enough
of a compute engine).  I can certainly resurrect one (I have two) and
see how it goes to try to put a modern systen on it...though I don't
know how soon I can do that.  I'll need to do *something* about modern
NetBSD/sun3 relatively soon, though, as my central house machine is a
NetBSD-1.2/sun3 machine that really really should be upgraded.
