I have just installed 1.0 on my A3000 and was amazed by how easy it was,
great work!!!
Thank you *very* much for NetBSD, it resurrected my aging A3000!

I really need to get GNU-Emacs for it.  
There are some Emacs archives available in the NetBSD-Amiga directory, but 
they appear to be precompiled versions.
I rather get the standard distribution and compile it myself since I have to 
do that for my SUN anyway.  

I tried 19.21, which is the latest I have at home, but ran into problems
when trying to link it.  It appears that Emacs has its own C-startup code
and this is clearly beyond my skills.
If I get 19.28, will it compile without problems?

This is a FAQ, but it could not find the in the FAQ.  :-(
Where can I find the latest kernel source?

I am considering a CD-ROM player for my A3000 which I believe is supported
by NetBSD.  But what about PhotoCDs?  If I get a multisession CD-player,
can I display the nice photos on my A3000 (using X)?
