It will run on 8088/86/286.  I lurk on the ELKS list and before anybody
gets enthusiastic about ELKS, it has next to no applications, and no
networking. It's still very much a developer toy. Given that I pick
up 386 motherboards regularly at tips, I wouldn't think too much about
ELKS. It would be good for embedded work as the acronym suggests.
