Thanks. :-)  MachTen though isn't freeware as Linux is. :-)  The problem 
I have with it is that it's a hosted OS and as such is limited to the 
Mac's problems.  i.e. - lack of true preemptive multi-tasking and 
protected memory.  Though the M680x0 series and all Mac motherboards can 
support both preemption and protected memory, Apple in its grand wisdom 
(or lack thereof?) is only now writing it into the next version of it's OS.

Other than that I love the Mac. :-)
