Syllable, AtheOS Syllable 0.5.7 has been released. You can read the changelog here, and the download locations are here. "The biggest change in this release: everything has been recompiled against the new libc, and we have broken binary compatability through the removal of all the old libgui/libatheos/libsyllable versions. There are also some new drivers, new GUI classes, new bug fixes, and no doubt, new bugs."

Did you check http://syllable.org/faq.php?cat_id=6&cat_name=Virtual%20PC">... ? Specifically, you need to disable ATA DMA to get the CD to boot.

OK I added "enable_ata_dma=false" to the grub commandline sequence, and it booted.
The interface seems very slow (no dma, in a VM), so I couldn't test a lot.
Tested with Syllable 0.5.7 LiveCD.
