A/UX can't run on a powermac. The only Unix that I know of that can run on
a powermac is MachTEN. I do not know if the reflector works with machTen.
I may try compiling it at some point. The problem is, the current version
of MachTEN is not native and therefore is a little slow. Supposedly there
will be a new version that is native around the end of the month.
