    Does anyone have a way of getting me the latest BIOS update for the Ultra 40? The situation with Oracle and their obnoxious patch policy means I don't have a way of accessing the official downloads. Thanks!

    I don't find the Ultra 40 included in the list of systems in the
    on-line system handbook in Australia. IF you mean the Ultra-30, that is
    a quite old system by now, and is likely to have nothing newer
    available, unless it went un-patched for a long time in service. I do
    have the last patch for the Ultra-30's big brother, the Ultra-60, and
    that one is:

    LATEST flash-update-Ultra60-09; flash-update-Ultra60-latest
    UPA/PCI 3.31 Version 0 created 2001/07/25 20:31
    POST: 2.0.3

    It *might* even accept the same patch -- i don't know for sure.

    If the Ultra-40 is a newer system, all bets are off.

    Good Luck,

  3. For reasons only known to Sun's marketing folks, the later
    Sun desktops were AMD64 based.

    Ultra 5/Ultra 10/Ultra 30/Ultra 60/SunBlade 1500, etc.
    Later, x86:
    Ultra 20, Ultra 40

    Don't think that the SPARC firmware will work on the AMD64 systems :)
