O.K.


Yes. :-)


Hmm ... I'm not sure that the 1000BaseT ethernet cards are
available in the Sbus card format. Otherwise the Ultra-2 is a nice
machine for one which will work with your existing keyboard.

However -- you need a PCI bus system to be able to expand to
1000BaseT. So I would suggest an Ultra-60 as a good choice. It also
uses the DIN connector for your keyboard and mouse.

The Creator-3D card will support 1280x1024 and 24 bit deep, and
that is the default supplied with the Ultra-60. I used it with a LCD
monitor a 1280x1024 at 24 bit depth.

The fastest CPU for the Ultra-2 is 400 MHz, and for the Ultra-60
is 450 MHz. The bus on the Ultra-2 is Sbus, while the bus on the
Ultra-60 is PCI. I, not too long ago, moved from Ultra-2 to Ultra-60
because I needed support for LVD SCSI, which was not available in Sbus
format. (I've since moved to the Sun Blade 1000 -- but that uses USB
keyboard and mouse connectors, so it would not work with your existing
keyboard.)

Both use two UCA disk drives internally -- but the Ultra-60 can
accept 1.6" drives, while the Ultra-2 can only accept 1" drives.

The Ultra-60 is in a tower style case, while the Ultra-2 is a
horizontal format case.

Good Luck,
DoN.
