I finally got a DraCo (MacroSystems' 060 machine) as a loan (to port
NetBSD). First thing I'll have to do is to rework the boot process. The
Draco does not have any low memory.
My idea is, to make all the code (and data accesses) up to the MMU
activation position independent. The bootloader would have to make sure
it loads us at a 8kB boundary, but there is no other restriction. This
would also help people with small chip memories. Are there any problems
with this approach?
