I believe that SPARC/Linux will run on the Netra T1 (if memory serves
me, Sun gave one to DaveM to work on), but it curently won't work on the
Netra X1.  The Netra X1 has a new CPU (UltraSPARC-IIi), a new PCI
chipset for SPARC (ALi), and I beleive a new IDE controller (VIA?).
Basically, have patience (or work on it). :)
