Okay, just saw the rest of thread. Right, ultra5 and ultra10 workstations
come with a PCI card that has an onboard processor (I think he said AMD
k6-2 / 400), USB, sound, etc.
Most people are just using it to do excel, and to interact with a palm
pilot. One guy was using his just to crank away at Seti@Home units.
It would probably make a good quake server as well ;-)
