A friend of mine just installed 1.1/i386 on his system, he had a few minor
<1> He had to recompile a kernel to do ppp (read: floppy-shuffle hell for
<2> config(1) that shipped in the 1.1 binary set apparently didn't like
the kernel config files in ftp/NetBSD/NetBSD-1.1/source/ksrc11
(read: _more_ floppy-shuffle hell to get source for config)
I don't know what is up with <2>, I can't personally verify it at the moment.
<1> Can be fixed if we simply compiled GENERICOTHER and GENERICAHA
and put them somewhere in the binary dist so that users can at least
do ppp before compiling a custom kernel.
If 1.2 is going to be have an installation floppy set that contains a
compressed kernel, I vote that we (somehow) compile in ppp support.
Anyway, something to think about.
