What can I do? I'm not sure I can do much, but I can always tryŠ :-\

Somthing else I have been thinking about for quite some time, is there a
list of all the features MacBSD supports and doesn't? I was just curiousŠ
Another curiosity of mine is that what made you want to port NetBSD in the

Just wondering again.)

Is this supposed to mean that MacBSD should be refered to as "NetBSD/mac68k"?

If you find out, can you tell me? Mine's probably there tooŠ
