I will look into getting this information for you. If I can't get it
directly from Genesi, then I will try to get it from the people who ported
other OSes to it. I beleve that OpenBSD was successfully ported to it at
one time, and freebsd they are working on, plus several flavors of Linux.
They must have all the info you will need. It is just a matter of getting
them to play nice and share.
