1.3     ! mspo        9: NetBSD/amd64 is a port to the AMD64 family of processors and
        !            10: supports all other CPUs that implement the 64bit AMD64
        !            11: architecture.  These currently include AMD Opteron, AMD Athlon64,
        !            12: and Intel CPUs with the EM64T extension.
        !            13: 
        !            14: NetBSD/amd64 is a true 64bit operating system. Running
        !            15: 32bit NetBSD/i386 binaries is supported as well, see 
        !            16: <a href="http://netbsd.gw.com/cgi-bin/man-cgi?compat_netbsd32+8+NetBSD-5.1+i386">compat_netbsd32(8)</a>. Running 32bit Linux emulations will
        !            17: be available in the future, the setup will be similar to
        !            18: the one described in <a href="http://netbsd.gw.com/cgi-bin/man-cgi?compat_svr4_32+8+NetBSD-5.1+i386">compat_svr4_32(8)</a>.

        !            26: (Simics VirtuHammer), pre-release hardware and access to a range
        !            27: of Opteron hardware through the
        !            28: <a class="ulink" href="http://developer.amd.com/" target="_top">AMD Developer Center</a>.
        !            29: 
        !            30: The port is fully functional. It has been tested on single-CPU and
        !            31: multiprocessor (SMP) Opteron configurations. Since the <a class="ulink" href="../../releases/formal-2.0/NetBSD-2.0.html" target="_top">release of NetBSD 2.0</a>,
        !            32: it is a completely supported platform.
