If I were to suddenly find the time, and have the inclination to, port NetBSD
to another platform, I'd start with the netwinder which I could borrow from

But I have recently come into an IBM RS/6000 7009 C-10.  Its a small server
that has an 80Mhz 601 PowerPC processor, and seems to use the Micro Channel

I've found both linux and NetBSD has some MCA support for old PS/2 MCA
Machines, but neither mention its use with the PPC.
It may be a wasted effort, but with the recent availibility of such machines
(see ebay) and licensing issues of AIX, a port might be desirable.

How much work would be involved in moving NetBSD PPC to work with such a
machine as the C10?
