belegost is now running RH6.0 (2.2.10ac12-smp). It's modified a lot, but
should still be recognizable.

It's got a partial-T3 connection to the rest of the world.
It's got 27 gigs of drive space. /var/tmp has 3.5 gigs free.
It's got 224 megs of ram.
It's got a pair of P5/166mmx processors.
You've got an account.

Go for it. :)

not that i've used it, but i'm told that the 6.1 installer was extremely
good at auto-identifying and auto-configuring every piece of hardware in
the machine.
