the connector I'm thinking of is physically the same as the AAUI connector
and not at all like the 'AUI' connector on, say, an SS20, which is
something like a 26-pin version of the compact 50-pin interface used for
the SCSI interface on the same machine.

Dunno if we're talking about the same thing or not. I've never seen the
back of a SPARCbook, but I know this same 26-pin thing is used on the
SPARCserver 1000, the SPARCclassic, and the SPARCstations 5, 20, and
LX (though not always for ethernet). I've only seen the AAUI-looking job
on SBUS ethernet cards.
