OK, cool. I understand that multiple displays are a function of the driver 
from xorg but still nice to know it works on NetBSD ;)

It appears the network cards are not supported. I've just loaded a snapshot 
from ... 19th Oct and get:

vendor 0x8086 product 0x27a6 (miscellaneous display, revision 0x03)
vendor 0x1969 product 0x1026 (ethernet network, revision 0xb0)
vendor 0x1814 product 0x0781 (miscellaneous network)

So now I'm thinking maybe I was correct in assuming it wasn't supported?
Unfortunately I'm in no position to learn what's required at this point and 
need something running. If somebody wants me to test anything or provide more 
info, let me know ... I'll be wiping it tomorrow otherwise.

Thanks :)
