You and me and at least one other person I know of :-)
I currently know how to talk to screen, keyboard, and Ethernet; this
should be enough to build something that will boot and run diskless.
The major thing I'm lacking at present is time to work on it. I'm at
the stage where I'm about to wade into one of the other
68040-supporting ports with a machete and see if I can lobotomize it to
the point where it at least comes up far enough to fail to exec init.
