There is a stripped-down version of the Linux kernel (and maybe some utilities) that is called ELKS (Embeddable Linux Kernel Subset). A couple of years ago when I checked the project's status, they had apparently been testing it on 80286 hardware only, and having trouble with instructions like ROR AX,n not existing in the 8086. (There the amount of bits to be shifted must be either 1 or specified by the CL register.) There seems to be something at <URL:http://www.elks.ecs.soton.ac.uk/>. The latest release is over one year old. According to the ELKS FAQ (accessible from that site), ELKS runs also on the 8088. Hmm, I got a 8088 motherboard for free some years ago (I took it because of the memory chips). Should I maybe try to set it up as a firewall or router? Nope, the network stuff is missing from ELKS. :-) Marko - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list. To unsubscribe: echo unsubscribe | mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
