Yes, that's the monster. ;-)

I don't have another NetBSD/Sun3 setup on which to hack (just NetBSD/i386
and NetBSD/mac), so I think I'll rummage through some trash bins, and see
I can stumble across a supported controller.  I really don't want the
machine to be stuck with SunOS for the rest of it's life.

Anybody on this list have a controller (501-1217 or 501-1236 I presume)
they want to part with cheap? ;-)
