It's not *too* hard to operate the box.  I'd be happy to help out in
getting it into a running configuration.  (nfsroot is by far the easiest
way to do this, and it's actually faster than running off of a SCSI disk).

Sun3x should be able to be compiled into the same kernel as any other
m68k.  Sun3, correct, requires its own kernel to work correctly.

Sorry for my total debian ignorance, but where would I go to look for this
patch, so I can validate the config file and kernel image?
