I guess "early sun" means pre sparc cpus, 68000 and 386. Can we get enough activity to start a sun category? I just won an ebay auction for the install tapes for sun 3 and somewhere I have a tape drive that I THINK is the correct one, it came in a sun style enclosure. I removed the tape drive planning to put in a cdrom drive, but never go around to it (and I never throw anything out).

I also have early several sparc computers, running solaris 5 through 10 (the solaris 10 ones aren't that vintage, of course).

I'm not really a Sun collector, but I do have a 386i/250. Unfortunately I haven't got the Type 4 keyboard & optical mouse that it was originally shipped with, so I'm running it with a Type 5 from a Sparc LX.

Nice machine, though. Still seems bizarre to fire up a DOS window next to a Unix shell :-)
