Up to now, I've found 2 people interested. (Ward and Simon).  This means I'll
be stuck with some machines.  So, if you're interested in a Sun SPARC system,
please reply now.  Beware: you'll likely need a car for transportation; these
systems are quite cluncky.   They're about 10 years old.  Debian GNU/Linux and
some BSD's and some other distro's are known to be installable and supported on
these systems.  See also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Fire .

Bye,

Joost

PS: visit me at the Debian booth, that's stand number 9 at level 1 in
building K (the "new" building)
