Will show "Unknown Host [0.0.0.0]" on the display, instead of the usual
IP address to rlogin to. 10.0.0.160 if that's you first box obviously.
If you do multiple, they will have different IP's. (:> remember, rlogin,
not telnet. Not working at that time of configuration from the I368
server setup from the CD for the install. If you have the 0.0.0.0
display, just connect a console to your Cobalt 115,000 8N1 and login to
finish the install. Piece of cake! Then reboot.

Just check it for yourself. uptime will display a quick results.
With paneld enable: load averages: 1.18 or very close to that +- .05
Without: load averages: 0.08 +- .03
Other then that, the install is quick and flawless. May be 10 minutes
from when you have your CD ready. 15 if you have a big drive, or more if
you have a HUGE drive. But from start to end, 15 - 20 minutes max should
be what you need really.
