    Hi there
    Just wondering is there anyway to install CPanel on a cobalt raq server if you start off with a totally blank hard drive?

    You have to load a supported O/S first no matter what computer you are using.

    I don't think Cpanel offers a image to load on a bare metal drive.

    I know that mate, so if I was to install redhat or something like that then just install cpanel as normal it should in theory work?

    Go on, have a guess
    Yes, it should - it's OS dependent, not hardware.

    Is this a newer raq or one of the really old ones?. I know the old machines had weird MIPS processors and required a custom redhat, which might not be supported by cpanel.

    The new ones should be fine as long as you install a supported O/S. But remember you can get a test license from Cpanel to be sure before committing to a license contract.
