I guess that was a really, really old e-mail, then...

Well, even though we don't include a "generic-x86" configuration yet,
ELDK 5.x has everything in place to be used with x86 systems.  The
Yocto project, which ELDK 5.x is based on, supports some Atom based
boards, so it should be a straightforward procedure to use one of
these to derive either support for a custom board configuration, or
for more generic x86 support.

 The software required `Windows 95 or better', so I installed Linux.
