The theory sounds good, but this one is headless. I could
run X via VNC, but I'm likely to do more text-based stuff on
the machine in question.
The 10baseT transceiver seems (after minimal testing) to be
working and I've bought a new null-modem adaptor for the
serial console. Now I have to make a decision about how I'm
to install NetBSD/sparc on it. The most practical option for
me (at the moment) may be to boot from a diskette and use a
Zip disk as the install media. I'll have to experiment a
little this week.
