I don't believe in a problem with the ethernet driver. A transfered X11 via
network to another host running NetBSD and there were no problems.

Several people downloaded the 1.0 binary distribution on a programmer meeting
via NFS from my host and they had no problem to "gunzip" it.

I suppose you have a harddisk problem. Are you using e.g. an A4000 with
an A2091? If so try to disable DMA via "binpatch"(*). A friend of mine
had problems with reading archives from his CD-ROM until he disabled

(*) Don't ask me how that works. I have a Fastlane.
