FreeBSD(98) which runs on NEC PC-9801/9821 (pc98) architectures is a port of FreeBSD originally developped on PC-AT. It is aimed to make FreeBSD(98) work as same as FreeBSD. The kernel source is now included in FreeBSD source tree and most of userland commands built from FreeBSD sources work fine. However, some kernel features and userland commands, which depend on hardware or architecture of pc98, need more hack. Some are done but some are not included in FreeBSD.

One of the objectives of FreeBSD(98) is that it is released at the same time when FreeBSD is released, i.e. FreeBSD(98) should be a part of FreeBSD as FreeBSD-alpha is.
