I have a very nice donation coming from Sun wrt SPARC .. it is a T2000
machine (quite an impressive machine actually ... 32GB RAM, 8 Core
1.2GHZ processor).  The server should be here by the middle of next
week ... and I will be able to see if I can compile normal SPARC
packages as well as new Niagara packages on it.

Sun has been very nice to CentOS ... I would like to thank them once
again for an unbelievable hardware donation.

Thanks,
Johnny Hughes
