I concur with the Doc and Holger. To really be able to play and learn you
need multiple configurations (and once you start on the Power Systems you
start needing SAN switches, storages, etc) Even having lot's of hardware at
my disposal i haven't been able to implement NPIV for example, due to a
lack of HBA cards and NPIV-capable switches... I've done it on client's
machines but never on my lab...
Then again, they are nice machines to play with and with the current linux
porting trend they'll only get better.

I know this trouble when starting collection of IBM hardware

Now we have your own facility for hosting with thousands of square meters
and more than 200 systems, and my wife was included in the company - to
avoid any complaints ;-)
