My free Y2K update from NS3.2 to NS3.3 for black hardware, included a
set of boot disks and CD's for PA-RISC and Sparc as well as the ones for
68K and intel. For a while in '99, all you had to do was call Apple
with the serial number of your black cpu and they would overnight you a
complete set of NeXTStep Developer 3.3.
