*sigh*  No change at the moment.  None of the developers have
powerbooks or duos.  As I've said before, we can't afford to buy
each mac and port NetBSD to each one.

If you can get another PB170 on an indefinite loan for me, it would
definitely increase your chances of being able to run NetBSD.  I have
updated my .plan, so "finger" and look
at the end for more info on what would be useful.  [ The To-Do sections
still needs some work, I'll try to update that. ]
