Well, the TS11 isn't supported yet, but the UDA50/RAnn drives should work.
If you can somehow get "root.fs" onto the first N blocks of one of those
drives, then I think you should be able to boot it.
After that, unless you have an ethernet connection on it, there may not
be much more you can do with it yet, but..
Good luck with it, rick
