I'm gonna address many points here, not just his.  Sorry, if the
response time was slow --  but Allen and myself were in Illionis on
business for the last 4 days.  Allen, is still out on business, I
was lucky and got to come home.

For the MacII,cx,se30,iix use the netbsd.ii kernel
For all other machines use the kernel.

It works with system 6, 7.0.1 and 7.1.

The "too many scsi disks error reconfig kernel" message is no big
deal.  I get it on my drive.  The error is harmless and hopefully
will be fixed.

It needs to be in the root dir, it can be named anything -- just
make sure the booter is set to load that file name.

Download the sources and recompile.  But it won't solve this problem.
