According to Ron:

"we committed support for the RLX 800i blades. There are PIII-based 
blades that use the Micron 21PAD northbridge. The 21PAD is a fantastic 
design and the company has been very helpful with information. The RLX 
blade is also quite nice. Due to space limitations on the flash, we can 
only fit Etherboot or 9load; Linux kernel is too large at present"

Maybe Ron can shed more light on the RLX port.
