The MVME2700, like all the Motorola PowerPlus boards
(MVME230x, 260x, 2700, 3600, 4600, MTX60x, etc) would more likely
fall under the aegis of the NetBSD/prep port since PPC-Bug configures
them according to a PReP address map and they support booting a PReP
kernel from CD-ROM, hard disk, floppy disk and network.

However, these use the Raven MPIC/PHB, which is completely programmable,
so one could (and some have) reprogrammed it as CHRP in the kernel

See Debian PPC Linux for an example.  I run Debian on my MTX604-010
(dual MPC604e), but would like very much to see a BSD on the PowerPlus
