    AFAIK, the MCA RS/6000's use the PowerProcessor, not the PPC. Thus,
    Linux/PPC wouldn't run on those beasts anyway. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Support for the Power I/Power II processors would be welcome though,
    allowing us to install Linux on some of our RS/6000-boxes here, just for
    the fun of it.
