Excellent, so basically I can install Debian on my Sun.
BTW, uname -a says that the machine is sun4m; what kind of Sun is that?
LX? There's no letter printed at the front panel of the machine. I said
"classic", but actually it was a wild guess.

Is there any ftp site that I can download the Debian for Sun kernel
file? I don't have the CDs yet, but I'd like to boot the machine using
Debian and see how the procedure goes.
