Well, you should ask on the 68k list. However, I can answer your
questions. First, if it's an actual Macintosh Classic, it's not
supported by Linux at all. You need a real MMU, which the original
MC68000 didn't have. Second, noone has been able to figure out how
to get the EN/SC working yet. It might be possible to write a
driver for it, but it would take some significant effort.
