Hi all,

I downloaded the complete workings for MacBSD 1.0 from ftp://acm/vt/edu. 
Which took quite a bit of time at 14.4. I am really quite interested in 
UN*X type operating systems and even more interested at the possibility 
of running one on my MAC. I followed the installation instructions to the 
letter, everything seemed to be went fine during installation until I 
tried to BOOT for the first time. Of course, when I booted MacBSD, it 
came up saying that I need either a PMMU or a 68030.

I have a MAC II with 8MB of RAM and NO PMMU. Does anyone know if there is 
a way to get MacBSD to boot on this type of system without a PMMU. Or 
does anyone know where I could get a PMMU cheap. I am planning on getting 
a POWERMAC soon, and it would be great if I could turn my old MACII into 
MacBSD workstation.
Thanks in advance
