Yes. You need to implement system dependend parts of the system unit, 
sysutils, video, mouse, keyboard etc.

I don't know if ever a working version was produced for 1.0. No release 
was ever done. The source code can be found here:


While the 1.0.10 source might give you some ideas you should expect the 
code needs to be written from near scratch.

Not to my knowledge.
