Look, before this turns into some nasty off_t discussion, I would like to  
point out some things.

* - Don't like it?  Compile your own kernel.
* - Don't like it?  Compile your own kernel.

I need a way that makes 1st time installation easy.  If you already have it  
running, then you can get the source and compile your own kernel any way you  
want.  We need to concentrate on remaining with the views and directions of  
the main tree of NetBSD (this obviously caused a problem earlier with doing  
this type of thing).

Also, bitching Chris out about these types of decisions does very little good  
for his motivation to keep doing this.  I suggest that all of us tread  
lightly, otherwise, we'll lose yet another valuable resource.

Finally, let me point out that this is a really trivial complaint... does it  
make your machine stop working?  Green smoke come waifing out?  Does booting  
the kernel format your harddrives by accident?  No.  So you have to edit an  
fstab... woooo, that's _hard_.  Realize that we are the pioneers.. we already  
_KNOW_ how to do all of this..  In about a month, this list is going to  
explode as NetBSD-Amiga proliferates...  I don't want 400 messages of "ARGH,  
I newfs'd my ADOS partitions!".  Oops, I'm off on a tangent.. sorry.
