Very impressive :-)  Glad to hear that Debian's running nicely on that
kind of "big iron".  It sounds like you'll have quite an impressive setup.

I know one way that you could definitely help the project, though.  It's
not too fun, but we could definitely use some documentation help regarding
installing Debian on that particular machine type.  Seems that we have
alot of different types of machines that Debian's being installed on, but
very little official documentation on how that's being accomplished.

Thanks for the info!
