At home I have access to 3 different Acorn ARM based computers and I've
had it in mind for a while to try porting LFS to them. I don't know when
I'll actually get round to it though, although I do have a year until I'm
back at university (which does create problems with downloading though).
First thing is to sort out my x86 box though... (and then when I get some
money try and get my hands on the new dual processor ARM computer...)


Take a chance and step outside,
Lose some sleep and say you tried.
