I did get the sparc version of ubuntu 7.1 and tried it on the fujitsu
PP 450, but failed. It seems that ubuntu may support machines from
Sun's family, but not Fujitsu, although both of them use the same cpu
with the same architecture.
There is an opinion that Fujitsu did not release its technique details
to any linux, thus none of the linux version support Fujitsu
