"AMD Athlon and AMD Duron Processor BIOS, Software, and Debug Developers Guide, order# 21656"

anyone have a paper copy, or know if it's on line somewhere?

Mame emulates PCs

That's right, they merged with MESS a few years ago. Does their PC emulation work well ? I remember checking out their Atari 800 emulation and it wasn't very good.

I can't imagine wanting to emulate an Athlon PC (circa 1999) when that software can be generally run directly on a modern PC. Generally people want to emulate classic stuff from the 1980s.
