Unfortunately I don't currently have enough resources to actually
install enough of FreeBSD-3.0 on this system and run any tests.  (Not to
mention that there seems to be something wrong with the copy of the
3.0-RELEASE fixit floppy I got to the extent that I couldn't even ftp
the dmesg output off of the system).

I was hoping FreeBSD would recognize the partition table and allow me
to mount the NetBSD filesystems, even read-only, but this most
definitely did not work.....

CAM *must* eventually get into NetBSD if NetBSD is to keep current with
SCSI standards.  Whether or not the FreeBSD implementation is integrated
is a separate and subordinate question.

Well, yes, but for now as a headless single-user development server it
should server quite fine.  My primary Sparc-2 server has only 64MB RAM
too!  ;-)
