I have just recently subscribed to your news group and all this
talk about licenses has me asking the question is one required to
run MacBSD?  I have not seen it mentioned in the README files but
one of the comments made it sound like I might need one.

I have been tring to get MacBSD up and running on a MacIIx.  It looks like
it should go with almost no problems.  The one problem that I have run
into though is that I am using a mouse systems 3-button mouse as my
Apple mouse started to get a bit jumpy.  Has anyone used one of these
mice on a Mac w/ MacBSD?  They have been the defacto standard on
sun workstations for years.  Is there any hope of porting part of
a sun driver to MacBSD to support this device?  I would be willing to
help if someone could point me in the right direction.

One other thing that would be nice is if you could partion the tar files
so that they will fit on floppies.  To get the tar files onto my mac
I had to parse the large tar files using dd and then wrote my own app
to reconstruct the origonal files.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.
