Best distro for a cluster of old Sun Ultra 10's?
 
I'm converting a bunch of old Sun Ultra 10 computers (SPARC chips, I believe) into a Linux cluster. Since they are old machines, I want a no-nonsense distro with a small memory footprint. I've only ever worked with Intel chips, so I really have no idea where I should look for this one. Right now I'm trying out Gentoo... but I wanted to ask here since you folks are always so knowledgable and helpful.

Thanks!

I've looked at several of those, but to my knowledge, many of them don't exist for SPARC chips... namely DSL and Puppy, both of which I have used before. Slackware has a SPARC flavor, but is it's memory footprint as small?

If I can use those distros you mentioned on SPARC, please let me know... maybe I am just missing something.
