Hello again from Gregg C Levine usually with Jedi Knight Computers
Just thought you should know Simon, it worked, I found an 'i386' version
that came close. Of course, I had to add one or two things from my CD that
were not installed by the default setup process, but that's okay, it has
practically became old hat. Also, I found out why the setup scripts for X do
not bother to check for a mouse connected to /dev/tty00. In most cases, they
think a /dev/mouse was created. So I did just that.
Now how many credits do the NetBSD outfit owe me for making this discovery?
