In a similar tune, I have the following gear to offer:
- 1x Allnet ALL6500 (Thecus N2100)
- 1x Kurobox HG (266Mhz powerpc)
- 1x IO-Data lan tank (266Mhz superH)
All of them have a serial port available.

Same instructions. If you are coming to debconf this yead, it doesn't matter
where you are located.

The ALLNET was donated for debian work, the rest are more flexibly
available for any kind of free software work.
"rm -rf" only sounds scary if you don't have backups
