There is a Netatalk porting effort underway.  There is a mailing list for
discussing it - to subscribe, visit
It's almost completely machine independent - the only machine dependent
part is to allow the appletalk stack to receive soft interrupts.  The
MD diffs for i386, sparc and amiga are trivial, so I imagine the atari
ones will be also.  The port is mostly working and is available at
