 The Gateway!  CD offers a small goodie, which you might want to try out.
The kernel "netbsd" in / is a generic 1.0 kernel with some special hacks
for CD-ROM support.  Start this kernel using "loadbsd -b" and give "cd0" as
answer to root file system.

 No need for floppies then. No need to even install NetBSD :-)
