I just convinced a friend to give NetBSD a try. He managed to install
1.3.3 but encounters some problems right now. They seem to be about
unrecognized cards, especially his US Robotics modem card. From my own
(current) system I know some of those devices are supported now, but I'd
like to know about them all, esp. about the modem card. Will it be in 1.4?
How to get it work if it is not? Here are some extracts from his
