I searched the list and saw your posts. :-) There is something (a patch
to Bochs I think) attached to one of the posts. Do you have any
recollection if it got merged?
Did the NIC in the simulator work with the RTEMS BSP?
I know it was a long time ago but what do you remember about it?
Good points, problems, pitfalls, etc?
Ralf and I talked last week and he independently mentioned getting
Bochs to run so we coudl test easily. I have long wanted to have
it running but never got a clear idea on what was required and what
capabilities were expected to work. I am fishing now to try to
get good instructions and advice. :)

Possibly but for now, psim is sufficient for most powerpc testing
on a simulator. It would be nice I suppose if the network driver
in PearPC worked with RTEMS.
