Re: (none)

Key word is configs

Inferno runs on the X86 processor but in order to be useful you need drivers
for I/O like keyboards, mouse, printer port etc

thats why we've got this debate underway concerning what constitutes a
standard PC for Native implementations

I've been running Native on a Pentium with hard drive and keyboard  + IR
remote (com2), sound blaster and diamond stealth video card + 3com ethernet

We are trying to get native inferno to boot from the PC's hard disk or a
floppy so that I don't need to have a Unix machine for booting

This is claimed to be possible by some e-mail here-in etc

I'm all for it
