Thanks a lot to those who help me to start my

Muchas gracias a todos

If a newbie in -current (like me) wants repeat my
experience, the steps are here (it is for i386 and
requieres some experience in netbsd):

1) Download and install the latest snapshot (it is in
   anonymous ftp /pub/NetBSD/arch/i386/snapshot )
2) Download and untar the sources (the files are in
   anonymous ftp /pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-current/tar_files/src/*.gz )
3) Compile a new kernel
   cd /usr/src/sys/arch/i386/conf
   edit MYSERVER and change all you want (if you want)
   config MYSERVER
   cd ../compile/MYSERVER
   make USETOOLS=no depend all
   cp /netbsd /netbsd.old
   cp netbsd /
4) Build the tools
   mkdir /usr/obj
   cd /usr/src
   ./ -t
5) Build and install your new set of binaries from /usr/src
   your server is ready

Steps 4 and 5 takes about 4 or 5 hours in my box (PII-350,
128RAM, 9GB 7200rpm 9ms SCSI-III)
After the build process, /usr/src takes 540 MB and /usr/obj 310MB.

I did it (steps 3, 4 and 5) without understand what I was doing,
but it was good (for me) because I am beginning to understand it.

Thanks again
