Still some SPARC left

Last week I decided to start working on my Sunblade 100 that I got back in November. It has been sitting on my stack for about the last two months without even being turned on once. The main reason for this was the lack of networking and my knowledge of Sun’s Solaris OS. After hearing that some people had Ubuntu server running on these machines I decided to download and try it. I now have Ubuntu 7.10 installed with networking and a Linux environment that I’m used to. After disabling the built in speaker because it frustrated me to the point of smashing some keys off of my keyboard with it’s beeping when using the console. Now only thing that annoys me now is the loud hard drive but as I use it via SSH I don’t have to been in the same room as it.
