You too have not read the responses, shortly after those messages
I made a kernel available on this machine in ~ftp/pub/NetBSD/ports/i386
which could be used instead (and did work for the only people that
mailed me response.). Since some people might not even have
a NetBSD system from which to mount the kc-floppy to replace the
kernel, I have made a


which uses said netbsd.installaha kernel, though I have
naturally not tried it out. There is no reason it
shouldn't work though.

Cheerio, hope it help(s/ed)
