Re: sun4c (Was /etc/disktab on vax)

If there's a way to hex-dump the PROM on the working IPX (ideally without removing it) to duplicate it then that might work even better. I know the one PROM works fine, the other one is a couple tenths behind (2.7 versus 2.5 or something like that).

Alex: Sounds like you guys are getting into the territory of needing your own prom burner. A cheap willem programmer, mine cost 51$ inc shipping and took a bit over four weeks to arrive by mule train from Bulgaria to Australia is going to do the business. They're fiddly till you get used to them but they do allow for burning a lot of different ROM's and also for ripping them.

Both of these should be model 4/50's. The motherboards have Hobbes silkscreened on.

That's normal. Sun liked to have a lot of machines with project names. Calvin, Hobbs, a kodiak bear, same with a top-hat, Sharks, stingray, .. does anyone remember what the "SunRise" project symbols were ? There was T-Shirts for them all. Also, if you check the sun hardware ref, part1. It'll list the machines. Afair the "Hobbs" was the IPX and Calvin was on the SS2.
