Yes. Even X11 on the PMAGB-B aka HX aka SFB framebuffer is supported. I
will get a 3000/600 today. It will be used as NAT router / firewall. (I
have an extra TC Ethernet card :-) ) So ask me in a vew days how it
works. ;-)
And you can run Netcrap - ahhh - Netscape for Tru64 on it. Somwhere on / is a "Tru64 Netscape for Linux" that
comes with the needed shard libs to run.
But get more RAM. At least 96MB or better 128MB. I have a Alphastation
200 (166MHz 21064) with 128MB runing NetBSD 1.5. I use it for Netscaping
and I LaTeXed a big part of my diploma thesis on hat machine.
