I recently upgraded my system with those Super Workstation people.

They swapped the motherboard for me, but let me keep the original
host ID PROM. This way SimCity would continue working unchanged
without having to call Dux up again ;-) ..

So someone running the script you gave will think my SS2 is a 4/60, right???

When the system boots the /usr/adm/messages stuff says something
other than 4/60.
