prep, sgimips, i386, sun[23], ia64 (yes, ia64), and many other
platforms without accessing mentioned hardware. They use software
emulators for such purposes. So to summarize experience of running
NetBSD on emulated hardware the following page was created:

At this moment it fairly incomplete and information given may be not so

If you have any ideas, comments, or additions you are warmly welcome!

Looking forward for your replies,
