That the PearPC can support AIX 4.3.3 or even 5L

    I've yet to see AIX run on anything not IBM. Luckily,
    current 5L supports USB, Matrox and runs open firmware.
    You'll still need to emulate the LCD and various other
    proprietary devices. I think looking at Hypervisor access
    code in the current ppc linux kernel would be helpful, and
    simulating a POWER4 LPAR might be the easiest from an
    infrastructure standpoint, but you'd need to emulate the
    POWER4/G5/970 instruction set too.

    I'd love to see this, but I bet it's pretty low priority
    since it has limited audience unless you got IBM on board.

    Maybe the rhype code released GPL by IBM a while ago can help here?

    I would also love to see PearPC have the ability to run AIX! What resources does the PearPC group need in order to see AIX support added?
