To load linux on the bare machine i believe you would need to replace the
522 byte per sector disks with normal 512 ones, at least that was the way i
installed suse on a 550 for some tests...

Does this "spare 520" have IBM i (i5/OS) installed and running on it
already? If so, it should be possible to use Operations Navigator or
STRSST to create a second partition and then load and run Linux in that
Or, are you talking about trying to load Linux on "the bare machine"?
