Right, sure, I was referring to what I've personally got access to
(through work mainly) that I'd be able to do some Debian stuffs on.  The
only sparc I've got at home atm is a sparc2, which is likely to be
junked before too much longer unless someone's interested in it.  Having
a sparc at home would let me host it for others to use but it sounds
like that's covered w/ the E3500 etc.  If necessary I can test installs
and kernels on the boxes at work though having one at home might be a
little easier.  I don't profess to have lots of time though, so if
there's someone else who's got more time and inclination it'd be better
to go to them first.
