I just finished building V1.1Alpha Nov 18th on one of my home NetBSD
machines. All went well except for a few missing dir's that needed created
by hand. The serial support is much improved over V1.0 and V1.0A (June
24th). Two item's that may make NetBSD more popular with the general pubic
(like all the support Lunix gets) is:

a) A new install (is this included with the V1.1 release ?)
b) A reference to Samba (the public domain SMB software, allowing the
sharing of your Unix file space / printers with Pee Cee's running
Windows-NT, Windows for Workgroups or OS/2). Those of us using NetBSD in the
corporate world have to deal with this Pee Cee's everyday and integration of
the two platforms make this much easier.

Keep up the good work.
