Annoyingly, I'm knocking this system together for a company who need to be
able to get their hands on arm-running hardware with some urgency,
otherwise I'd offer my assistance.
I may still be able to help you out, if you have access to a RISC PC -
I've decided to upgrade this box to StrongARM and RISC OS 3.7 since I can
do that within the time constraints I have to work with. When that
happens, the ARM710a board and RISC OS 3.6 ROMS will be surplus to my
requirements, and I'll happily donate them to the cause, if you can put
them to a good home.

Indeed. I had planned on cross-compiling a new kernel on my x86 Linux
installation, but I don't really have the time right now.
