Re: your mail

	A Sparc5 170 works really well with debian.  I've heard
<completely unsubstantiated> rumors that the linux kernel doesn't work
well with the sun4c platform, but that's about it.  the SS5 that I have is
sun4m.  All in all, IMHO Linux on sparc is better than linux on the x86,
or solaris on sparc, for that matter.
