Heh, why not use any of the mirrors? Check out the
/pub/NetBSD-Amiga/MIRRORS-file, then use right in you
neighbourhood)(sp?). :-)

Hu??? I can't remember that i'd ever did much about X-installations, not to
mention some scripts or even a FAQ. There's a X-FAQ, but that's as out of date
as most of the other docs on NetBSD/amiga. :(

There *is* no current documentation (well, besides the source :-). Figure it
out yourself, then contribute to NetBSD by writing some up-to-date docs. >:)

For binaries, check out
