Yeah, I'm real impressed by the speed of the thing, have NetBSD 1.5 on it,
and it boots and works like a charm over serial console, will have to 
install VMS on one of them to test the speed of X on it. The only thing
that I miss is more memory, 64MB or more would be nice in such a machine,
but I guess 32MB is sufficent, pitty I have to take memory from them to
get decent amount in some. (came with 16 MB)
