Hi there,

I am the one who had written the articel about NetBSD-1.0 being late.
So I first want to appologize (sp?) if someone think that my words
are not well taken.

Second I want to say thank you to Brian Moore who had build some
NetBSD-1.0-Beta floppies. They work fine; i.e I am just working
with 'his' system.

There are only three minor problems wich take some of my time:

 - There may be a note in the INSTALL document what to do if
   someone wants to have the system on the whole disk; you
   have to give all cylinder (excluding the swap space) 
   to the install-script the first time it ask how big an
   area had to be.
 - The /tmp and the /var/tmp/vi.recover directories are
   writable for root only. I had to change the modes to
   start vi as an user. 
 - I have to change the /etc/rc and/or /etc/netstart files
   to get my X running. Otherwise it didn't find 'sam:0'.
   Even a 'ping sam' did fail. I think that that faeture 
   should be enabled because the majority of NetBSD user did 
   use X. (but I may be wrong).

But it may be that I have done something else wrong.

Nevertheless I have a running NetBSD-1.0-Beta. Well done.


P.S. I also want to say thank you to all other people who
	 had brought NetBSD to us.
