	The package system is a great thing, but we don't seem to be
	really telling anyone about it - there shoyuld probably be
	a link on the homepage to a page containing a brief overview and
	"download /pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-current/tar_files/pkgsrc.tar.gz
	 extract into /usr/src, then cd into subdirectories & type make
	 then make install",
	plus a link to the full package	documentation.

	At the moment I guess most users don't even know about the package
	system :(


   _.oXo._   Too complex to explain, too simplistic to admit.   _.oXo._
