    Hi.

    I am building a CPU/Minicomputer from scratch, using solely 74HC series of IC's and I want to install Minix on it when all is done.

    I do not understand much about OS, and I need to know whether I need my CPU to support hardware memory paging, in order to run Minix?

    Or can I simply have enough ram, and no paging at all, does Minix itself take care or paging, and managing memory for each process?

    Thanks a lot indeed!
