I've messed (many moons ago) with the RaQ, Qube, and Netwinder. All were at one point non-x86 hardware. I'm not sure if this has or hasn't changed. One distinct issue for all three systems was that they may or may not support removeable boot media. This makes installation that much more of a challenge. Barring other alternatives, I'l look at a chroot install. Assuming you can get the process started, it solves a number of problems from the get-go, though you still need to get the boot system loaded *and* have enough space left over to repartition. http://twiki.iwethey.org/Main/DebianChrootInstall The following gives instructions for installing Debian on a Qube2 or Raq2: http://devel.alal.com/pipermail/cobalt-22/2002-July/000298.html And there are some list posts: http://lists.debian.org/debian-mips/2001/debian-mips-200108/msg00004.html http://lists.debian.org/debian-mips/2001/debian-mips-200108/msg00021.html Peace. -- Karsten M.
