I rebooted the system without the card inserted and note that there is
now a /var/crash/netbsd.0.core.gz, apparently a core dump. Would this
be helpful to you? It would take some doing to get it off this system
(I have no working network cards and no CD writer, so I'd have to
split the file into small enough chunks, 10 or so, to fit on a floppy
disk), but I'll do it if it would be helpful. Can I send emails with
attachments to this list?
