Just a trivia note, but the first Linux for PC98 I saw was a beta (alpha?) 
version on a CD sent to someone at TLUG from someone at the Kyoto University
Microcomputer club.  I don't know if it actually worked or not, not
having a PC98 to try it on.  This was in 1998, probably summer.  Maybe some
of those same people went on to work with Plamo Linux?
