Yes, please move U1E and U2 (no E) to "Fully Supported".
Despite what the page had said before I think "U1E" is actually a
common name for one of two different versions of the Ultra-1 machines.
The two are significantly different, and we actually do not support
the "U1". The normal U1 has a Lance Ethernet controller chip for
its on-board interface and has a "narrow" SCSI interface connector
coming out its back. I don't think we have a Lance Ethernet driver
at all, and that machine's SCSI controller is different enough from
the U1E's controller that it doesn't work. I think. :-) The U1E
has a HME onboard ethernet controller and a wide SCSI connector
coming out the back.
You might want to wait a day or two or three before making the change
to the page to see if anyone else replies. I actually have both of
the different Ultra-1 variants and the case of each has the names
I describe above. But others might have input. :-)
