My original query:

> I'm looking for any information about running 4.1.3 on a 2 processor
> SparcServer 1000.

> I know that Sun doesn't support this and I've read the appropriate
> part in the faq which says that 4.1.3 "has been reported to run" on
> Sparc10 and Sun600 MP systems.

> What I really need is any details from people who have tried this or
> are actually running 4.1.3 on a sparc1000.

The (unanimous) answer is that you cannot run 4.1.3 on a sparc1000 or
sparc2000 as they are a sun4d kernel architecture and 4.1.3 does not
support this. This was verified by a couple of people who reported
trying and failing.

4.1.3 runs on Sparc10 and 600 MP systems because these are both sun4m
kernel architecture and this is supported within 4.1.3.
