Well let's think about it.

what do you have?

SCSI: Standard across all CPU's so no problem there
Audio: Don't really see any real problems, if it is "real" SB only a
Solaris driver is needed
Video: Drivers needed
Video Capture: Uses QuickTime, drivers needed
Eithernet: (Intel Spec) Solaris Driver
PCI bus (maybe one slot) again Intel Standard, Solaris driver

So I don't see a problem..

Well they aren't going to just go away, it's really a matter of saving them
from Sony/Kodak/Daewoo or someone
