This has changed. The Amiga stuff was integrated, but I ripped it all
out to replace it with the hp300 stuff recently. The SCSI chip is the
current hangup--someone is working on that this summer. I'm planning
on attempting to put support into the kernel for a diskless boot which
will help me (and be pretty nifty-keeno)... Right now, there are a few
little nasties left over from the hp300 code integration that affect
only the 040 port, but not much--it's a lower priority than the 030
systems that already work.
