} I just opened my JavaStation (JavaStation 1, according to the case) and
} the CPU is indeed marked "MicroSPARC II" (and "STP1012PGA" and

     As luck would have it, there is a SparcStation 5 sitting on
a shelf behind me, so it was easy enough to grab it and pop the
cover (I forgot how heavy that thing is, it's built like a tank).
As luck would also have it, there is a fan and heatsink on top of
the CPU, so I wasn't able to read the label.  Unfortunately, I
don't have anything setup to be able to easily plug it in so I
couldn't check the dmesg.
