Yea, maybe. But it's what the users demand: carry arround their little files.
What I realy want to know is whether it is:
(a) a hardware problem,
(b) a PROM issue,
(c) a kernel issue,
(d) an mtools issue,
(e) a debian issue, (already answered on debian-sparc -> negative)
(f) work in progress and it works partially,
(g) work in progress but no success in sight,
(h) a secret kept by sun, they must be beaten,
(i) absolutely unfixable and everybody ignores the hassle,
(j) nobody is realy interested in that but me.
