    Or perhaps you’ve written a rather ground breaking insight into some aspect of Debian and you feel compelled to share it with others? Knock up a longer editorial article and send it to the editors.

    Using a Diskless Sun Box with Debian

    SparcThanks to the hard work of a friend, I have been enjoying the use of a few diskless Sparc X-terminals running on my local network. After prodding him into writing up an article for the benefit of other Debian users, I thought it was only fair to submit it to Debian Planet.

    Please note that the SLXT package that I used had been updated somewhat since I wrote that howto. It might even be more debian friendly.

    Still you should get on just fine if you ignore their install scripts and just copy the files about like I did.

    Now if anyone in the UK wants an old mono Sparcstation SLC then I have a few kicking about..
