1 Introduction

GigaAccel 180 is an accelerator board based on IBM's PowerXCell 8i
processor. The board has 4GB of DDR2 SDRAM, two 1 Gigabit Ethernet Ports,
one x16 PCI Express interface, and it can run Linux. This makes it possible to
put the vastly superior floating-point calculation capabilities of PowerXCell 8i
on a standard workstation. Since this accelerator board does not have a hard
disk drive, it network boots by obtaining the boot image from the boot server
through a TCP/IP network.
