I think an Ultra 5 is probably a little light for our purposes: m68k's

that consumer-grade DSL poses for system accessibility over the long term,
I'd think that vore is still a better bet currently in spite of some past
connectivity problems there, both connectivity-wise and bogomips-wise.
Would you be willing to ship the system to Stephen if the search for better
hardware pans out and vore proves unreliable in the long term?
Please note that Nicolas Will (CC'ed) has offered some time ago to arrange
a more powerful machine, should it become neccessary . I hope Linux
actually runs on it, as I don't recall ever seeing installation reports
for them :-).
