It was done for a few more platforms then just Amiga.

Yes it ran on DOS, in fact that was where it started out, with bits lifted 
from the Linux Kernel of the time.

The XT linux version I was looking at was based on the project mentioned here:

It was a bugger getting the network card going!!!
And no it was not a minix clone...
Someone in finland took over the Ham Radio port and intergrated the KA9Q 
package into it. But all the URLs that point to it are dead.

The 286 version was based on the ELKS project, found here:
ftp://ftp.ecs.soton.ac.uk/pub/elks/
It was done by a german chap... and docs were very hard to understand.
