Ok guys, I've ordered an Athlon64 (UP) box with a ASUS K8V
motherboard, which hopefully FreeBSD-5.x's ATAng supports (but I'm
not sure). The MB has both ATA/133 and SATA so I'm hoping it can
serve as a testbed for development and testing ATA as well as
the primary purpose of starting work on an AMD64 port. Hopefully
by the time I get it I'll have the namecache stuff done well enough
to move on.
I've been reading up on the AMD64. It looks fairly straightforward to
me assuming the compiler and assembler support is there.
