When you need testers for older UltraSPARC hardware, holler.

Got two midsize Enterprise servers here; a E5500 with 8 procs and 9GB and two 
full D1000 shelves on the Qlogic PTI diffSCSI controllers, and an E6500 with 
10 procs, 6GB and two drives on the esp controller.  Also note that the esp 
driver was completely redone recently and it would be absolutely great to 
have that backported to the 2.6.18 kernel.  Note also that the big Suns need 
the qlogicpti; Ubuntu 6.06 server was built without that making it useless 
for me... :-)

Also have a Blade 150 I could test with, amongst other random hardware.
