I have an A1200 that used to run NetBSD 1.5, with a PCMCIA NE2000 card. It
requires an MMU, but isn't so finickity about FPUs these days.

Linux also runs quite happily on it, but the '030@50MHz struggles to do
anything at a great speed. NetBSD appears to run faster, although I've never
given it a proper timed test to see exactly how fast that is.
