I've got about 10 of them, not up and running at the moment tho. I've had sunray's working on both solaris 9 and redhat enterprise 3 using the beta sun ray server 3 software from sun's download page. I've seen directions on how to get them working with debian (never tried myself) and a buddy of mine tried with gentoo with no luck.

Never had to rip one open. I think the specs on sun's page say like 100mhz ultrasparc and 8 megs ram. you'll want a good network and a beefy server to run them on. trust me, a sun ultra 5 will come to it's knees with about 3 or 4 sunray clients. I had to use my sun enterprise 250 (dual 450's, gig o ram) to keep all of them happy. for redhat I had a dual 2.4 xeon machine with 2 gigs and no problems.

throwing some cheap dual processor x86 sounds like a much better idea for those sunrays... hmm, ray... that rings a anime mecha bell, maybe with blue gender or something.
