The Sun IPC is a "Campus" project chip - it was the second instance of the
C-class processor that was the original SPARCSTATION.
They actually worked pretty amazing as NTP servers, DNS Servers and rotuers
too only I liked a heavily stripped down version of 2.8 for them. 2.8 by the
way is the last release of the Solaris OS to support Campus Chips as I
recall - BLU is this correct?
