SUN has a PCI card you can get, which in essence is a PC, with CPU and
all. Runing x86 code on a SPARC, I wouldn't recommend, if even possible.
Also remember, an Ultra 5 is sloooow.. ;) If you gonna spend hard earned
cash on a SUN box, consider what you want it for. I would more recommend
their V100/120 stuff. Much more worth the money..
