There shouldn't be any reason it doesn't run, but we haven't tested it
on that hardware yet...  If it doesn't, I'm sure both Kip and myself
will be willing to help figure out why it doesn't...  The biggest issue
I can think of would be device drivers, but we are currently using OFW
for that, so it shouldn't be an issue...
