Running Linux on the bare metal, part 2

In your response to the person who asked you about running LINUX bare on a mainframe, it seemed to be that you politely understated the case. I know very little about Linux, but I thought running "bare" also included having to code all of your own interrupt handlers, IO drivers, etc. This alone would require almost as much effort as developing an operating system. Am I really off base here? Does Linux handle all of that stuff?
