What SCSI card are you using? Sun SCSI cards are expensive...

Check ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/3.4/packages/sparc64/ for packages available to sparc64.

I've had issues with custom kernels, so I stick to GENERIC. I haven't had any problems with GENERIC. All my hardware has been supported, and it's fairly quick.

NetBSD-current might support SMP on SPARC. I'm thinking about trying it on a sparcserver 20 SMP I've got. Eventually. ;)
