|   Sure, the Sun will work fine.  If you are using DNS, you'll have to
|   edit /etc/nsswitch.conf on the Sun box, find the hosts: line, and
|   insert the word dns in front of the word files.

Which /etc/nsswitch.conf are you talking about? The latest OS for the
3/60 is SunOS 4.1.1_U1, and it sure didn't have any /etc/nsswitch.conf.
