So, I want a nice laptop, but I really hated running Linux on my laptop,
because, well, I dunno. I just don't like it as much. *BSD is more
comfortable. Since I work for BSDI, I figured I'd try BSDI on my ThinkPad
Found CPU (Pentium II)
Found isa0 (root)

And that's all she wrote.
But wait! I have a 1.3.3 distribution set lying around. I download a boot
floppy. I put it in. Will the PCMCIA work? Yup. Will the floppy boot
successfully? It sure looks like it.
Thanks to NetBSD, I may not be stuck running Linux all next week. Thanks
to the core team and all the folks who contributed the various code that just
saved me. :)
(Of course, I'll probably end up spending a week or two getting BSD/OS running
on the laptop. I'm like that. But I can do it *LATER*, and not have to run
Linux in the meantime.)
