I doubt it would be compatible. But then, seeing as a port of circle
already exists for unix, what's the point? :-)

My main reason for going down this path is to end up with a box I can
put on the 'net without having to spend a lot of time staying up on the
latest unix bugs.. I get paid to keep up on the bugs in Netware, so why
not use that knowledge as well?
