A few days ago, I subjected a well-running Potato Sparcstation 4 to
this, and it did not work very well at all.

It was a big Linux-style failure.  I can still boot to multiuser mode
and bring eth0 up manually and no files were lost.  In a pinch, I could
still use this machine, but it has _very_ nasty package problems.

Unfortunately, I have not fixed it yet, as until soon, all I have is
dialup, and it's just too slow to re-download lots of packages (or just
install woody from scratch.)
