If to my 2cents, RaQ series are varies with processing power, raid or unraid, and type of appliance.
Most raq are with AMD K6 processors. Raid series equipped with 2 Hard Drives and the series ended with "r" at the end of the series number.
The RaQ box can be restored to fresh new stage using a Restore CD which utilize the TFTP.

Actually the OS Restore makes the appliance mount a temp home directory via NFS after getting an IP via regular BOOTP/DHCP. Certain hard-coded scripts are looked for in that temp home dir by the loader in ROM.
Are you suggesting that the raq will provide for sites not hosted on the raq?
Yes, BIND is installed on the RaQs, and via the admin UI, you can add records for any domain you want. As long as the domain is configured at its registrar to have the RaQ as its authoritative DNS server, it all just works.
So you don't have to host a site on the RaQ to use DNS services. You can assign just a "base" domain name that the server has (one IP, one domain), and use it solely as a DNS server and not do any website hosting at all.
I know several people and companies that use their older RaQs solely as DNS servers.
