Let us know what the problems are with the emulation.  On the SE/30 with
little screen, the screen size is 85x34.  The following command should
work on BSD systems:
	stty rows 34 columns 85

If you don't have a second unix partitions, delete the line in /etc/fstab
that refers to it.

Hmmm.  Don't know about this.  Was it downloaded and uncompressed
in binary mode?  You have to have matching kernel and ps commands
to get ps to work.  Structures are in flux between BSD 4.3 and 4.4
at the moment and are subject to change.  Sorry about the inconvenience.
