I have successfully run  RTEMS apps on a Pentium using the pc386 build,
however, when I attempt to run the apps (including the hello world ) on a
386 with no co-processor, The console just display an infinite Exception
which I cannot read. I suspect that it may be that soft float is required,
but I am not sure.  Is there a way of ensuring that I am not trying to use
the co-processor and am in fact using the soft floating point libraries.
