                      9: NetBSD/amiga is the port of NetBSD to the Amiga line of personal computers by
                     10: Commodore and [Amiga International](http://www.amiga.com/) and to the DraCo by
                     11: [MacroSystem GmbH](http://www.macrosystem.de/).
                     12: 
                     13: Development activity on NetBSD/amiga continues at a speed dependent on people's

                     16: DraCos. For 68020 and 68030 systems, a FPU is recommended but not required.
                     17: 68LC040, 68040V and 68LC060 systems don't work correctly at the moment.
                     18: 
                     19: Due to the MMU requirement, it will not run on A500, A600, A1000, A1200, A2000,
                     20: A4000/EC030, CDTV or CD32 out of the box. You must install a CPU board on them
                     21: to run NetBSD.
                     22: 
                     23: The minimum RAM requirement is about 24 MB FASTMEM, the minimum hard disk space
                     24: needed is about 250 MB, depending on how much system components you install.
