        Yes, it is a Sparc V8. Today, the only supported architecture is i386
(and derivated).

        You can install bochs on a station and you can try to build a working
kernel. After, you can propose to Roar your help to work on the kernel,
or you can help me to continue the SRM like console (I don't have time
enough :-( ), or you can work on runtime libraries... We need to write a
lot of code.
