There is a fellow in comp.sys.cbm a few months ago who mentioned that he was
designing a par. op.sys. around half a dozen linked 128's. Not sure how far he
progressed (the mail feed I get now doesn't carry that particular newsgroup),
but he'd gone quite some way into designing it.... will look up my archives &
see if I can extract the relevant info.
