Tell me what to do. I guess i should sup the latest kernel-sources...

The netbsd-generic kernel from last weekend didn't worked with le0. The
configured devices were ppp0,lo0,sl0 and another i cannot remember now.
The A2065 was recognized during startup though.

I guess i really should sup the sources :-) CD9660 is a must for me...

Well, no. MSDOSFS never compiled correctly in earlier kernels for me, so
i never bothered with it. Now as i finnally can access floppies, i thought
i give a MS-DOG disk a try, alas it didn't worked.
The error-message is not appropriate to me. '..is not supported by
device..' could be anything, but doesn't indicate that the kernel has
n support for it.

Again a pointer to the sources, gna :-)
Thanks for help, let's get movin :)
