Ummmm... If you can port NetBSD to this one, more glory to you.

However, even by IBM standards, there is virtually no public documentation
on the architecture, or even the funky "sorta-kinda-a-PowerPC" processor
it uses.

My suggestion would be to not buy this thing unless you have a use for it
as an AS/400 and a cheap source for a copy of OS/400, which (to my
knowledge) is the only OS that runs on the AS/400.
