All,

I've wanted a sparcstation 20 since the late 90's and finally decided to purchase one. Unfortunately it arrived with some damage to the case. I was able to swap the board into my sparcstation 5 case with no issues. Just wanted to confirm that for anyone that wants to upgrade a 5. The 20 even at 60mhz runs circles around my old 5 setup.

Hello Brian : out of curiosity are you dual booting Solaris and NeXTStep? Best regards Rob Blessin

Right now just nextstep 3.3. I may also put Solaris on it now that everything is working. I also found a good deal on an 85mhz CPU.
