Whereas http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/sparc/ch02s01.html.en#sparc-cpus 
"sun4, sun4c, sun4d, sun4m
    The last Debian release to support sparc32 was Etch, but even then only 
    for sun4m systems. Support for the other 32-bits subarchitectures had 
    already been discontinued after earlier releases."

The Web page is wrong?

Would UP be Ultra Panther or Ultra Plus?  Not that I 
have either; just for interest.

" ... sun4[cdm] stations, you have to use NetBSD 4.0.1 (or 5.0 in UP)."

In http://www.netbsd.org/ports/sparc/
sun4c is listed as supported.  Absence of reference 
to a release should mean that 5.0 works.

You've convinced me.  I'll learn to install NetBSD.
