OK, What are the 100 and 700 based off of, and can
they be hacked to do
other useful things (ie run a different OS given the appropriate boot
roms)? Specifically, what kind of CPU / other hardware is in the box?
IIRC, the 100 _must_ be netbooted, and the 700 might have to be (I believe
it came in two flavors, one of which doesn't need to be netbooted). I've
never heard of anyone useing these for anything other than their original
I'm not sure, but I think you can use the 700 as a console server once
you've gotten it to load its software.
