- HyperSPARC CPUs, to my knowledge, are not yet properly
supported. Aaron/Paul, please correct me if I'm wrong...
- To my knowledge, the 4/600-series is not yet supported.
It may not be that hard to make it work, but it'll probably
require some work. If you have a 4/600, you're a perfect
candidate to work on it, and I'm sure Aaron/Paul/others
would be happy to help you out.
