Could someone please explain to me the rational behind how the
Power{,PC,2} architecture handles segments? I've been studying both the
Mindshare book, and the 601 manual (I haven't raided the Motorola document
site recently :-(  ), and it seems "weird." They just seem to break up the
memory space for little gain.

Also, how does NetBSD, specifically macppc, handle segments?

Take care,
