Hi folks,

i have a "nice" SNI RM200 (from SiemensNixdorf) and I do not want to continue using the SINIX operating system. I want to install Gentoo. Is it possible? If yes, how do I install it?

Thanks for your help.

Timo.

IIRC, SNI RM200 systems are MIPS-based, although I'm not sure what processor. I believe the kernel does have decent support for SNI machines, and if so, all you'll need is a custom kernel, and *maybe* one of the initrd's I have on my dev site will be usable to let you get a netboot working. From there, you can try one of the stages, see if it works any. I know nothing about said systems, so I cannot provide much more advice than this.
