Hmm, I've never heard of an ICL DRS 6000 machine, but I have heard
of an IBM RS 6000 machine...

The latter have (at least) two major architectures:  the old
architecture and the new (power-pc) architecture.  You can get
linux for the power-pc architecture, but I haven't found _any_
free os for the old architecture.  :-(  If anyone hears of
a free/open-source os for the old architecture I'd love to know.

It would be interesting to find out of the ICL DRS 6000 is the
same as (or similar to) the IBM RS 6000.
