no memory protection or MMU are required.
32-bit CPU makes it a lot easier to port.

HP/UX port is done - last thing is the JIT which should be
done soon.

Prospective ports are AIX and FreeBSD, no timeframe.

I am looking for a good platform to put out a standalone kernel.
Generic PC does not cut it because of the configuration issues.
Any suggestions?
