Thanks, but I think Solaris 2.5 is much too new for the Sparcbook 2 (and 
I believe that the stock Sun versions of earlier versions (like SunOS 
4.1.3) are incompatible as well -- it's been awhile since I last tried 
but I don't think the stock kernel will boot).

If anyone knows differently, let me know...
