A customer of mine has a Cobalt Raq at a colo site.  It sucks! :(
They want their pre-existing server transferred over to it.  The old
server is a FreeBSD 3.4 machine that's been quietly evolving a service
of the last few years.  If I had my way I'd sneak into the colo site,
and install FreeBSD on the Raq ;).
