Even better IMV

If your computer can run Windows -->
If you have an Athlon64, Opteron or similar -->
If your computer can run MAC OS or AIX -->

Are IBM {i,p}Series supported? I don't recall. No matter, just make it 
clear in index.html

Don't forget when Sunny boxes are supported, and those too.

By incorporating the info into index.html you obviate the need for 
downloaders to explicitly download and read the README.
