Hello -

Wow!!  Lots of good replies and only one out of office bounce
and one direct sales call (from a truly clueless idiot).

Anyway, the general consensus is that while Sun may say that
it'll void warranty, most have done it and been happy doing so.
One person mentioned possible difficulties with SLA support.
