2.11BSD, non-split i/d issues

<As already mentioned in previous messages, I'm working on getting
<2.9BSD onto a Pro 350.  I'm using 2.9BSD as a starting point because
<it claims to support machines without split i/d.  The 350 uses the
<F-11 chipset, which I have read does not support split i/d.

The F11 does not do I&D split but does have user/system.  

<I would prefer to use 2.11BSD because I understand it's still actively
<used, and not as buggy as 2.9.  But everything I've read about 2.11BSD
<says that it needs split i/d to run.  Can anyone give me more detail
<about this?  Was support for machines without split i/d removed from
<the kernel, or is it just that some of the programs are too big to fit
<in a single 64k segment?

It's my understanding that 2.11 will run on F11 systems (pro350 and 11/23)
if properly configured but the only binaries loose are for split I&D.
So if properly configured you can get 2.11 to utilize the user/system
