I guess that I'm lucky in some way, but these machines are only borrowed as education material (from my company). A PPC distro would not do me any good since the machines have Alpha (digital) and Sparc (sun) processor (correct me if I'm wrong on this one?).
You lucky bastard, I would try getting suse linux or turbo linux, both have PPC editions.
Offcourse NetBSD and OpenBSD or solaris can be installed, seems to me you have plenty of boxes to choose from.
I will not start struggle with Solaris this time, since it's a bit more know how involved then just simple setup a linux box :D.
micael I'd like to help but alpha? hmmm .solaris for the suns 1st choice. Maybe if you could mention the alpha models. Anyway, here is a link for cross platform app to use between the suns and alphas once you choose an os.
