                     14: 
                     15: Algorithmics boards include PCI and PC-like on-board peripherals, and have a CPU
                     16: daughtercard, allowing the user to evaluate a variety of MIPS CPUs.
                     17: 
                     18: Algorithmics boards include the PMON boot monitor/debugger. PMON is able to load
                     19: the NetBSD kernel over the Centronics port (in S-record format) or over the
                     20: network (in ELF format) using BOOTP/TFTP.
                     21: 
                     22: Algorithmics boards can generally be run in big- or little-endian mode, although
1.14    ! sevan      23: NetBSD/algor currently only supports little-endian.
