I've never specifically stated what "goes" and what "doesn't go" here - but
looking for a SmartStart CD or floppy would be best sent to the geeks list.

I'm not going to say "no x86 talk, ever" - but this really isn't the place
for it, unless you've saved some obscure 8-or-more-CPUs Intel-based monster
that won't exactly boot a Linux or XP CD. 8-)

Guys, if you don't like x86 hardware, there's no need to be assholes about 
it - just simply remind the person in private mail that their question
would be better directed elsewhere.  

Being frothing-at-the-mouth anti-x86 reactionaries will do nothing but 
encourage current PC users to *not* look into other platforms, because
"man, people who use <platform> are so rude and unhelpful".
