In a way. Internet Portal offers supported servers for specific
tasks, which usually are build on NetBSD, ssh, sendmail, UofW
POP/IMAP servers, apache, etc. etc. I expect that most of our
clients neither know nor care that these are NetBSD systems, however.

I've been wondering how to take this a little further, and my
current plan is to look at NC-type setups as I find the time.

I'm not sure I see a huge market for non-application based NetBSD
support, since you're competing head to head with companies like
Caldera. Why would someone who doesn't really know what he's doing
want to choose NetBSD over Caldera Linux?
