Just some comments..

:> 	SCSI host adapters:
:> 		Adaptec AHA-152x (and other AIC-6260-based boards, such
:> 			as the SoundBlaster SCSI host adapter)

Additional note: without a boot ROM on these board, you can not boot
NetBSD from these boards.. IDE or other type of disk required.

:> 	MDA, CGA, VGA, SVGA, and HGC Display Adapters.  (Note that not
:> 		all of the display adapters NetBSD/i386 can work with
:> 		are supported by X.)

Additional note: refer XFree FAQ.

:> Hardware the we do NOT currently support, but get many questions
:> about:
:> 	Adaptec AIC-7770-based SCSI host adapters (including the
:> 		Adaptec AHA-274x, AHA-284x, and AHA-294x families).
:> 	....

Draw a distinction between them.
* May be supported soon.
* not supported for a while, or forever X-<
