Linux on PS/2 Mod95 MicroChannel

  Hello,
   I'm interested in running Linux on a IBM PS/2
Mod95.  It's a MicroChannel machine, SCSI HD,
CD-ROM, XGA-2 video system and Token-Ring.
  Do I have any hope of getting this working?
  Any f/b is appreciated.
  Thanks - John Doyle

Not on a microchannel machine you don't.

Ooooooooooooooh yes he does. :)

Apparently people have been having some sucess running Linux on MCA
machines, I hear that SCSI based machines are easier to make work than
ESDI system. Have a look at

1. MCA Linux (Linux for PS/2 Microchannel)

If you look at the new kernel configs you will see a tree to add mca
support for hd, nics, etc, WWW.dgmicro.com/mca is a good source for info
