I have recently had motherboard problems and now I can't seem to get NetBSD installed again. I get random
crashes usually caused by an FFS error. Some errors are illegal instructions, some MMU trouble. I have
tried three CPU cards, all '040's and none have cured the problem, so I know it's not a CPU problem.
Hm... did you get your motherboard/BUSTER exchanged? The 3640 is known
to be very picky with motherboards, especially if a real demanding OS
like NetBSD tries to setup the MMU.

and the Paula and none have gotten me anywhere. My system runs Amiga software well, but also crashes
under SS now when it once didn't.
