Well, no takers on the A/UX ethernet module question? Come on, I know someone must know.
Anyway, I need some partitioning suggestions on a different box.
I'd like to use this 2gb drive I have in my SE/30, and max it out with OS's, as a trial to use bigger drives for the same purpose. But will all the OS's I want live in harmony on the same drive? AND can they share the same SWAP space?
Since it will have a IIfx ROM, I will hack 8.1 onto it...
and also a very small partition of 7.1 (?or 7.0.1?) for launching into NetBSD.
I haven't looked at the 68k instructions for OpenBSD, but I have read the port is available. Will OpenBSD live side by side NetBSD?
Also, I thought FreeBSD on the 68k platform a forgotten pipe dream, but then I found 2 vague references to someone who ported it over. Its not listed on the official supported platforms list at freebsd.org, but here are the links to show me that there is a port somewhere:
very near bottom of page,
Here someone says that he told them he is almost done with the port
here, someone responds to Stockley saying he finished the port, and points out that he posted in the wrong place.
I can't find where he was supposed to post, either.
Now, the question is... where is the darn port?
And, again, the big crazy question, can I have partitions for all these OS's on one big drive? And can the unices share the same Swap?
And one more little question... can FreeBSD be customized to look and feel like Darwin OS (in the details)? Can the special Apple commands in Darwin be compiled for 68k FreeBSD? Is it possible (and relatively easy) to make a start-up screen that looks like the OS X start-up screen? Does FreeBSD have atp? Can it have it? Hasn't someone already done this (most things I think of I find that to be true!)?
I am really learning a lot on this site, and with a quickness, much more than from non-interactive sources!
Thanks so much!
