    9: about="""
   10: NetBSD/sun3 is the port of NetBSD to the [Sun Microsystems](http://www.sun.com/)
   11: **sun3**, and **sun3x** series of computers, which are based on the Motorola
   12: [68020](http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=MC68020)
   13: and [68030](http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=MC68030)
   14: CPUs respectively, with a Sun-designed custom MMU.
   15: Sun sold these computers as both servers and desktop workstations from
   16: the mid to late 1980's. They were superseded by the **sun4** SPARC RISC systems,
   17: which are supported by NetBSD as [[NetBSD/sparc|sparc]].
   18: 
   19: Nathan Williams and Jeremy Cooper are the maintainers of NetBSD/sun3.

   22: ###Supported System Models
   23: 
   24: See [[Supported System Models|sun3_supported_system_models]] page.
   25: 
   26: ### Disk and RAM Requirements
   27: 
   28: * Minimum
   29:     * 4MB RAM, ~80MB disk
   30: * Normal
   31:     * 8MB RAM, 200MB disk
   32: * Normal + X11
   33:     * 16MB RAM, 300MB disk
   34: 
   35: The complete NetBSD sources without objects require 200MB of disk.
   36: 
   37: To run the X Window System or compile the NetBSD system sources
   38: (i.e. development), more RAM and disk are recommended.
   39: Good performance requires 8MB of RAM, or 16MB of RAM
   40: when running the X Window System.
   41: 
   42: ### Supported Hardware

   69: 
   70: If you have a device that's not listed, it might be compatible with
   71: something else, or we might have simply forgotten it.
   72: If all else fails, maybe you could write a driver!
   73: 
   74: Note: The Sun VME *sc* SCSI card is not yet supported.
