There is an obvious way on the A1200: the pcmcia slot.  Is there support 
for pcmcia from the laptop folks on the x86 end of netbsd?  Well, from 
what I heard the A1200's pcmcia slot is not to spec, and therefore 
explains the draught of PCMCIA Ethernet and modems for the 1200.  
However, Amigo Computers in Long Island, NY developed a A1200 specific 
ethernet pcmcia card.  It slides right in.
