Ah, ok.

But normally I should be able with that compat option to still use 165
and have a running system - or? (yes, it is -current, not -stable,
know this)

When the problems with the ahc go away, I will change the blocks.

(this is one of the reasons, I hate pc hardware. You have to be
compatible to some sh*t just because others also do. I don't see the
point of not just using the old 386 BSD boot method when the entire
disk is used for NetBSD. We had this some weeks ago, so I stop here).
