I'm running Oracle 8i Solaris Intel binaries on Solaris 8 Intel 4/01 release
plus recommended patches.  I'm looking at NetBSD because Sun modified their
free binary license to lower the maximum CPU count from 8 to 1.  Linux will do
since Oracle releases binary for Linux but Linux is not my first choice.
