I think NetBSD should be available on Aminet (including the CD). I've
been interested in installing it, but have as yet been unable to determine
where (if anywhere) the "good, current, complete kit can be had. This is
compounded by the fact that I currently only have dialup UUCP access and
downloads have to be done through ftpmail (which can be quite a pain).
Having NetBSD available on CD would make life SO much nicer...
