I remember a post in June in the netbsd-sparc mailing list with a guy
asking if someone was interested in picking up a SparcCenter 2000 in
"Tyngsborough, MA (USA)" -don't ask me where it is-. Afaik he got no
answers so if you need sun4d hardware to start a sun4d port maybe you
-or anybody willing to start this port- can ask him.
However these boxes are heavy as hell[1] so I think that only someone in
the USA can pick it up for a decent price.

[1] I remember that we were 4 people just to lift up a SC2000 rack with
nothing in it, even the disk arrays are so heavy that one can hardly
pick up two at a time.
