I'm sorry if I missed something - but why not just run Solaris 10 then? It 
works on an Ultra 5 if you don't need zfs root or have 512MB. 

I think the machine has 256 now, but I should be able to find some 128 cheap at my local computer store.

Solaris 10 does work though? I thought it didn't. This machine is this one:
