about="""
NetBSD/amd64 is a port to the AMD64 family of processors; it
supports CPUs that implement the 64-bit x86
architecture.  This covers all recent AMD and Intel models.

NetBSD/amd64 is a true 64bit operating system. Running
32-bit NetBSD/i386 binaries is supported as well; see 
<a href="http://netbsd.gw.com/cgi-bin/man-cgi?compat_netbsd32+8+NetBSD-5.1+i386">compat_netbsd32(8)</a>.

The port was first committed to the NetBSD source tree as NetBSD/x86_64
on June 19th, 2001 and  renamed to NetBSD/amd64 on April 26th, 2003.

The original work to do this port was done by Frank van der Linden at
<a class="ulink" href="http://www.wasabisystems.com/" target="_top">Wasabi Systems</a>, assisted by
<a class="ulink" href="http://www.amd.com/" target="_top">AMD</a>, who provided the simulator
(Simics VirtuHammer), pre-release hardware and access to a range
of Opteron hardware through the
<a class="ulink" href="http://developer.amd.com/" target="_top">AMD Developer Center</a>.

The port is fully functional. It has been tested on single-CPU and
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>,
it is a completely supported platform.
