I've recently acquired a Cobalt Qube2.  After about 8 hours of monkeying
around with it the last couple days, I have successfully got 2.4.24 up and
running, I started with trying to get 2.6 on it, that was a huge mess.  I'm
also using Debian sarge distro.  2.4.24 has a few #define's that are missing
and a couple other small hangups during my cross compile.  So far so good.
I haven't had a chance to stress test it yet.  Hopefully I can have more
details about stability in a few days, as well as a quick log of the changes
that are needed in the 2.4.24 source.  I'm not sure what i'm gonna do with
it yet, maybe set it as my new router or do Web or Qmail.  I have the Debian
package for the kernel upgrade, if anyone is interested.  You'll need to
compress and move the kernel and map file to the appropriate names in the
/boot dir.
