Hu, to high for me ;)

You mean building binutils on IA-32 for hppa, or building binutils on
hppa for other ports?
I built binutils on IA-32 for hppa, and it was not a big problem.

Mh, I have no floppy drive for my 712/60. But the whole machine has many
pc-like things, like PS/2, RJ-45, ... and there is a normal floppy
controller on the mainboard. Does a normal floppy drive work in the
712/60, or do I need a special one? And if, where can I get one?
