386/SX vs. 386: What's the diff?

Post by Dave Cottingh » Sun, 07 Oct 1990 06:41:42

I'm wondering if the cognoscenti could tell me what the difference is
between a 386/SX and a regular 386.  I am looking into buying a 386/SX
and I like the price and I don't mind slow.  My concerns are:

1) Will it run the 386 Minix in protected mode?
2) Does it have the identical virtual memory setup (so when vm-minix
inevitably appears, it too will work)?
3) Is it in any way visible to software different from a 386?

Thanking you,
