A happy update?

I've got 1.2.1 installed on the 486, with cache enabled. It's working well,
and quickly. I replaced the -current halt, reboot, shutdown, etc., with the
1.2.1 versions, and everything seems to be working like a charm. I even
managed to (finally!) get the thing to talk through its serial ports. I'd
rather be running -current, but the August 15 (?) and September 1 GENERIC
kernels crash on me. For now, I guess, 1.2.1 will do the trick. (For my
-current needs, I've always got the SE/30 going...)

Next up: trying to get ethernet going, or something, which will involve
getting ethernet cards for everything... (Well, only an adapter for the Mac
Q610, since that has the hardware already.) Concurrently: trying to get
cross-compiling going so I can compile NetBSD/mac68k stuff on the 486.
