Sounds reasonable.

Just about 3 weeks to wait until the RAM will be replaced.

Well, yes, Akire would be ready as well - except for the missing SCSI driver in newer kernels. This is especially bad, because the Blizzard2060 is said to support upto 256 MB RAM in newer revisions of that accel board, which this one seems to be. 
I could setup Spice as well, but that's only a 68040/40 with 64 MB RAM. 

But after the mention on Slashdot I got an offer from Graz for some machines. I've just contacted the person and asked he could make one of his machines (A2000/060) available... we'll see...
