It just makes emulation a bit easier.I've never tried this, but don't you have to have BINFMT_AOUT or BIMFMT_MISC enabled in your kernel?The documentation mentions Linux 2.0 / 2.1 so I'm thinking of installing an older Linux to see if Ican patch the kernel as discussed in the docs. Tracking down an actual 8086 XT is quite tricky these days to run the code, so its useful to be able to emulate. I think there are some actual IBM XT emulators out there which I might try.
A few to check out (there are more): http://dioscuri.sourceforge.net/ (comes with ELKS diskimage) http://www.hampa.ch/pce/index.html http://www.xs4all.nl/~rjoris/retro/ http://www.shinelife.co.uk/legacy-ibm-pc-emulator/ However, IA-32 emulators like Bochs/Qemu etc also work fine.
