Better use /proc/hardware

wouter@ska:~$ cat /proc/hardware
Model:          Motorola MVME167

wouter@kiivi:~$ cat /proc/hardware
Model:          Macintosh Quadra 840AV

and so on. /proc/hardware is an m68k-specific file which contains
information about the hardware you're running on. It needs to be enabled
in the kernel (CONFIG_PROC_HARDWARE), but all Debian-provided kernels
have that (at least all Debian-provided kernels I've seen).

What you need to grep for is "Macintosh" for mac hardware, "Amiga" for
amiga, or "Atari" for atari. VME doesn't support X AFAIK, and Debian
doesn't support any of the other m68k subarchitectures.
