|Strongbolt pt. II
So the installation on the second box worked a treat - eventually!
After it not booting from the net after several attempts, I plugged the xover cable into the other interface on the host PC - then it all burst into life. Oops!
No stalls, no failures! Just one session and it was done. Then set the IP address from the front panel, rebooted, did all the YUM updates and then relocated into my little part of the computer room.
It appears to be a lot faster in use than the standard Cobalt OS. Blue Quartz is a dream interface with everything you can think of. There are couple of panels I might need to write to make the home machine was as a home server (fetchmail interface, Samba sharing, etc) but I shall see how it goes.
Next step - getting a rack mounted NAS or 2 (1 for using in anger and 1 for DJing with). eBay here I come :)
