so far as i am aware (and i'm no Sun expert), the only sun4d machines
were the SPARCservers 1000, 1000e, 2000 and 2000e(?), all of which i
believe are SMP capable. the 1000e (which i have) takes up to 4
motherboards on a common backplane, each of which has two m-bus slots
for a maximum of 8 cpus.
i imagine it would run with one CPU, but where's the fun in that? :-)
