... Linux beyond x86

Sun SPARCstation 5 (170 MHz)

Certain installers (including older versions of Red Hat's Anaconda) don't work on this model, which slightly differs from the slower SS5 models.
If in doubt, install Linux on one of the slower models and place the hard disk into the 170 MHz model afterwards.
