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.
                     14: NetBSD/amd64 is a true 64bit operating system. Running
                     15: 32bit NetBSD/i386 binaries is supported as well, see 
                     16: <a href="">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="">compat_svr4_32(8)</a>.
                     20: The port was first committed to the NetBSD source tree as NetBSD/x86_64
                     21: on June 19th, 2001 and  renamed to NetBSD/amd64 on April 26th, 2003.
                     23: The original work to do this port was done by Frank van der Linden at
                     24: <a class="ulink" href="" target="_top">Wasabi Systems</a>, assisted by
                     25: <a class="ulink" href="" target="_top">AMD</a>, who provided the simulator
                     26: (Simics VirtuHammer), pre-release hardware and access to a range
                     27: of Opteron hardware through the
                     28: <a class="ulink" href="" target="_top">AMD Developer Center</a>.
                     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.
