you don't need emutos for running linux-m68k as ARAnyM got its own
integrated LILO.

ARAnyM will boot an atari kernel. If you had mac partition related stuff
compiled in the atari kernel it could perhaps boot off your old mac

the more RAM you gives to Linux the more it will like you, won't it? ;-)

I haven't compared with real hardware for ages but based on some
unrelated tests I *guess* that on host Athlon 2200+ you get something
slightly faster than 68040@33 MHz (CPU and memory speedwise). Emulated
IDE disk is the bottleneck now - but with ton of RAM everything gets
into the kernel file cache sooner or later ;-)

I plan on buying a dual Athlon 64 4000+ to get one core free for running
ARAnyM constantly :-) That could give me a 68060-like power, hopefully..
