386 and 486 are already 32 bit cpus.
I don't think porting reactos to 16 bit would be useful, because many
structures are for 32 bit numbers. Besides of this, most 8086/286 does
only have 1 MB Ram, a few 4 MB (the theoretical maximum is 16 MB for 286)

Porting it to PowerPC or Arm would be much more usefull ;)
