Is work still going on to port BSD unix to the early RS/6000 machines?  By
early, I mean POWER and MCA...

I have recently acquired some IBM 7012 machines.  The only one that I've got to
boot so far is a model 375, which happily runs AIX 3.2.5.

Looking at software available on the 'Net, it looks like I need an upgrade;
looking at prices on the IBM website, it looks like I need BSD or Linux.

So, how likely am I to be able to find anything useful? :-)

Many thanks,

Philip Belben.
