   Got them - SM52 modules - and they're a recipe for disaster in an
SS20. Way too hot, way too close together, and not nearly enough

   Want a SPARCServer1000? With a fully-populated SSA 100 and the
aforementioned SM52s? Boots, runs, has CD-ROM and original drives, 2
system boards and I think 512MB RAM. Keyswitch is gutted and ugly, but
functional. The SSA comes with the SBUS interface and a full load of
2GB drives. No fiber cable, though.
