I know this is a bit late, but I'm having some weird problems with the
sources from 3/7.  The problem is that neither tip, chat or kermit can 
open the /dev/tty01 ( i.e. my modem port )  They all report back with the link
being down.  I've went through the tip source, and found that the problem is in
hunt.c, when it tries to open the tty port.  I'm pretty sure I haven't changed
anything that would affect this ( like through files in the /etc directory )
The old 2/27 kernel works fine, but of course, none of the utilities that
access the kernel ( like ps and netstat ) work correctly.  Is this a known
problem, or do I just have something configured wrong that should have been
changed from the 2/27 sources.  My machine is a Gateway 2K 4DX2-66 with the
JX-30 motherboard.  I have another board in it for the serial ports, both with
15550a's and the probe info at boot shows them as being detected.  Any ideas?

Also, I know this is nitpicky, but is the old clock problem back also?  I have
my kernel configured for '5 dst' and my /etc/zoneinfo linked to Eastern, but
the time is still an hour off of the CMOS time.  This happened in either
386BBSD 0.1 or NetBSD 0.8, but I thought it was fixed in 0.9.  I know it's not
a big deal, but I catch myself forgetting that I'm an hour behind when working
on UNIX. Should I just configure the kernel for '4 dst' and be done with it?  I
just want to make sure that nothing will flip out timed, if I ever get around
to setting it up.

Thanks for listening,
