I don't know on what basis you say Sun4u is not a first-tier supported
platform.  There certainly is nothing I've ever read on debian-sparc
or the boot-floppies list, or read on the web pages, to suggest that.

It is however true that Sun4u is in a wierd spot since it required
linux 2.2, which itself isn't officially support.

However, I do think we are planning on another round of boot-floppies,
which of course would include the fixed 2.2.x kernels for Debian
