I have few 486SX machines I would like to have supported. No, I don't want to put them into serious production use.

Curious, as I haven't had an FPU-less x86 machine in quite a few years -- what is the latest release that you can run on your 486SX?

Depends on your definition of "run" I guess, I could do some testing if you want. I definitely remember running 1.6 or 2.0 on a FPU-less machine (either 386 or 486sx) few years back, and I was going to install netbsd on PS/VP 433SX/Si I got few weeks ago - could you be more specific about what counts as running? Booting multiuser?
