yes, it is unmodified GENERIC.MPACPI. i tried to rebuild it with npx0 at
isa. it finishes boot process, but

getty[702]: /dev/tty00: Device not configured

and keyboard is not functional. moreover, it seems that ACPI is not
supported on this box:

NetBSD 2.0G (GENERIC.MPACPI) #1: Sun Aug  8 13:01:24 CEST 2004
total memory = 1023 MB
avail memory = 993 MB

     ACPI-0162: *** Error: AcpiLoadTables: Could not get RSDP,
     ACPI-0216: *** Error: AcpiLoadTables: Could not load tables:
ACPI: unable to load tables: AE_NO_ACPI_TABLES
cpu0 at mainbus0: (uniprocessor)

it seems i will have to be happy with the single processor support
only... :(
