Sun did a power  PC  port I think paid for by IBM, which would have run 
on both the open Apple servers that briefly existed, and on IBM PPC systems.

A lot of odd PPC work happened in a group a friend worked for in Austin 
TX, but not sure if they did Netware work there.  There was a lot of OS2 
work there as well, but that's off track a bit more.
