SUMMARY: Token-ring Sun config

Date: Wed Mar 04 1998 - 14:18:50 CST

We seem to have a unanimous opinion among all of the respondents to my
query that the only configuration step needed to reconfigure a Sun from
4MBs token-ring to 16MBs is to physically change the jumper setting located
near the network connector.

Special thanks to the following folks for answering my question:
