Thanks to everyone that responded.

The overwhelming consensus is that there is no relationship between any
number you can get from the operating system and the sticker on the back.

The one departure was a suggestion that I try "sysinfo", a utility you can
get from

While sysinfo is a nice tool, the "Serial Number" that it provides is not
the serial number recognized by Sun.  Perhaps it is the serial number of the
system board, but there is no relationship between that and Sun's serial
