Huh? The Sun Nvram/Hostid FAQ (unfortunately it seems Squirrel has
vanished :-(, my version is here:
<http://www.dolbeau.name/dolbeau/files/sun-nvram-hostid.faq.html> )
includes instructions on how to stop the clock on 3/80 and sun4c, and
those instructions can be adapted to at least sun4m and Ultra 1 (base
address & map-page stuff). They probably can be used on a Blade 100 as
well.

Cordially,
