this from the boot prompt of course. The 3/110 was known as the "prism"
inside of Sun as it sported the fancy new color frame buffer. Like the 3/75
before it, it took multiple VME cards, although I believe it's got four
slots to the 3/75's 3 slots. The same box was used when the "Cobra" came
out which was the first SPARC desktop implementation (called a Sun 4/110).
The nicest version of the OS to run on the 3/110 was SunOS 4.1.3 (some
would argue 4.0.2 but I digress)

[note these are 10+ yr old brain cells talking, YMMV]
