    You will void the warranty on your Raq and it is against Sun-Cobalt's terms of use policy.

    It is a crazy idea though. Really dont know if it will boot up.
    May have to alter the ROM.

    but it's a very very old cobalt. there's no warranty....
    think it's a good idea...

    1) the odds of you getting it to work are 1 in 1000
    2) you will have a fun time getting an install of redhat on the raq considering it doesn't have a cd-rom nor any of the standard computer ports other than a serial port.
    3) Cobalt linux is a real version of linux, once you telnet into it everything is the same other than a few differant directoy locations.
    Voiding warranties is what I do best.
