I did not see the answers to these questions in the FAQs so I will ask...
I have an ECS A2000 with a VXL-30 40 Mhz 68030, A2091, 9 MBs memory(1 MB
chip, 2 MB 32 bit, 6 MB 16 bit). I have a 52 MB & 170 MB HD plus a CD-ROM
drive and a floptical(20 MB).
1) Is the CD-ROM accessable from the NETBSD? Is there anything special
I need to do to have that available?
2) Given that I want to:
a) Install NetBSD(latest version)
b) Do software developement, be able to re-built the system, ect
What size HD should I replace the 52 MB one with? What is the estimated
space required to have NetBSD, GCC, plus source and objects on my system?
3) I currently run a BBS and maintain the Amiga Citadel BBS software. I
have a vague idea of what I need to change(serial interface, ect..) but
I have been using SAS/C 6.3 and using short integers(to remain compatible
with the IBM versions of Citadel for networking). What difficulties do
you see with re-hosting from AmigaDos, SAS/C 6.3 w/ shortints to the
Thanks for the info...
