Hi, Albert.

I'm just about to leave on holiday for a month, so you're lucky you
caught me :-)  Linux does indeed boot on the D200, and the Alpha release
CD which is on the ftp site will run.  I'm not sure which devices will
be supported by that kernel, but it should be able to bring you to a
shell prompt.  The port is still a couple of months away from being
stable, so it's not really suitable for installing at a customer site yet.

Revolutions do not require corporate support.
