Re: NetBSD/bebox 1.5?

        I believe the people on port-atari are hitting the same issues
        with initialising pci graphics cards, and were looking at an x86
        emulator in the kernel to run the cards' BIOS. Maybe someone on
        port-atari could comment further? (Apologies for crosspost).
