NetBSD/atari is the port of NetBSD to the Atari line of personal computers.
Development activity on NetBSD/atari continues at a speed dependent on people's
spare time. Currently, NetBSD/atari runs on the TT030, Falcon and Hades.
Experimental support is available for the Milan.
A minimal system should have a 68030 CPU, 4MB RAM (of which 2MB can be ST-RAM)
and a SCSI or IDE disk. An FPU is not really necessary because the BOOT and
BOOTX kernels supplied in the distribution both contain FPU-emulation support.
Although the current emulation does not yet cover the full MC68882 instruction
set, you will see that you will get a very workable system.

> The Hades PCI bus is very critical. Many cards are not recognized. This
seems to be due to electrical problems.
> The current Adaptec driver does no longer work, unfortunately.
