well, after a lot of time and fight, I successfully compiled an old kernel
(2.4.6). It should be a starting point, isn't it?
The problem for me now, is to have a working filesystem and services.

I tried MOL, with success, but I have a little more experience on UML,
since it is not ``closed'' to an only one arch. It is possible to run UML
everywhere GNU/Linux system can (not now, but in a future?).

The problem is that the UML x86 development is fast and many people have
helped it, other arch's development has stopped long time ago (:-((

I would like to start from the 2.4.6 ``linux'' to see if I can build something


PS: for any info about 2.4.6 ``linux'', please contact me ;^P
