Hi Robert, the name is a legacy thing, feel free to talk about old Suns.
If you have the old software, and we can clear things with Sun, then
we could get it added into the archive here.

There was a German web site which had Sun's assent to put some old SunOS
versions up on the web. My email from Robert D. Keys
<rdkeys at seedlab1.cropsci.ncsu.edu> says:

  Try the http://doener.unix-ag.uni-kl.de/  site, and it is explained
  there.  The guy actually got Sun to OK it, as far as I know, but
  I have no idea of the exact legalese involved, but memory tells
  me it was Sun Germany that gave the go-ahead on it.

  The site may have moved to http://sun3arc.krupp.net, since I was
  thinking a move was in progress a couple of months back.
  I think I got to it via a link from www.sunhelp.com or www.sunfreeware.com.

Hope this helps,
