Hey all, 

I know the Sun Ultra 40 has a coreboot image available but is anyone
working on the Sun Ultra 40 M2 ? 

Sun / Oracle's latest BIOS for this unit will not support quad or six
core (or dual threaded) Opterons. The chipset is definitely capable
however. A BIOS with a microcode update would substantially enhance this
workstation, going from the current 2x dual core, single threaded / 4
way maximum to a 2x six core, dual threaded / 24 way system.

Thank You
