Yeah I know its dumb, but the machine at work compiles things SO much
faster than my wee 386/25. So I figured what the hell and mounted some
NETBSD <-28.8-->Router/Etc<--28.8-> NETBSD <-ether-> NETBSD
On the end machine, I hit make install and things started to chug, then
boom. Down goes the local machine running slip. Nothing useful in the log
files. Tried it twice: first time it just locked the machine solid. No
response to pings. Second time it just rebooted.
Is anyone else dumb enough to run NFS over SLIP? Any luck?
