I have an old F5 BIG IP 2U rack mount server.  It has a P3-850Mhz CPU.  I don't really know anything about this, but it looks just like this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/F5-Big-IP-load-balancer-850Mhz-4-2PTF-bigip-Manual-2U-/160479206010?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item255d4e5a7a

Since this was wiped before I got it, how do I go about returning it to it's former glory and making it a load balancer again?  Can I download the OS or do I have to pay F5 for a maintenance contract?

It might not be supported any more, but you should check with F5.  Presumably those who sold you this hardware needed the licenses transferred to the newer model they got.
