NetBSD "talks" to the drives okay, but NetBSD "newfs" and "disklabel"
seem to depend on BSD labels, and almost completely ignore the SunOS

	  musician shortly, and anyone with a family will be familiar with
	  the two month loss of sleep.

I'll give it a shot.  If someone else wishes to undertake this, that
would be fine, too.  (Proofing the checksums is gonna be a pain, too.)

Make a hacker happy.  Use a *real* OS.

I'm really a software toolsmith and a musician by trade, but nobody really
needs a software toolsmith much, and the music industry is so cutthroat
that it would probably do me in.  So I do systems administration on the
side as a hobby.  Funny that my hobby finds more work than either of my
