Yes! See: http://www-im.lcs.mit.edu/homedirs/magnus/
and look for the 950508 kernel.
It runs on my computer (when I unhook the locaktalk). I'm using booter 1.6,
with my memory set to 1 meg less than real (saves space for the video). I
used the current binaries (I think) off of ftp.eskimo.com. Everything
has worked fine including tcsh, X, and hfs (except that the copy of
tcsh in puma's eskimo.copy is still the bad one).

I think you really need the FPU.
