(no subject)

Ultra 5 Got the Sun Ultra5 up and running as ace after replacing the broken 4GB drive with a working 1.6GB drive. I started with Aurora Linux (site defunct), but wound up switching to a net install of Beatnix partway through.

Apparently Sun's cheap workstations have terrible IDE performance, so I'm picking up a SCSI controller and drive to try out. Also, the cheap workstations only have room for one internal drive, so I can't try the SCSI while keeping the existing IDE drive in place.
