Sure it's not SunOS 4.1.2. There was no SunOS 4.2. The last version
was 4.1.4. There were patches for the Sun4 or was it Sun5
keyboard in the 4.1.1 or 4.1.2 timeframe I think.

I've got the keyboard patch CD's at work.

If it's not 4.1.2 could it have been SunOS 5.2 (solaris 2.2.) or
5.4 (Solaris 2.4).

      Three things never anger: First, the one who runs your DEC,
      The one who does Field Service and the one who signs your check.
