Here at ACM at UIUC we have the following that we could use:
Linux on PPC
Mac OSX on PPC
Mac OSX on x86
OpenVMS on Alpha
Solaris on Sparc

If needed we could also set up the following:
Solaris on x86
BeOS on BeBox
Linux on Sparc
something on Itanium (Preproduciton-caliber Float support)

Also if you would like different version of windows we have:
2003 sever
