    Other distros on a Cobalt?

    Hi,

    I have just read about something called Strongbolt.. original text can be found on this website:
    http://www.osoffice.co.uk


    Strongbolt OS installer - Centos 4.3 and Bluequartz System installer for Raq servers

    Apparently it installs the same way as Raq install disks! Simply boot up a pc with the install disk, and power up your Raq!

    Installs RaQ 3's RaQ4's and RaQ 550's.
