Scott and other IIci owners,

   I have also been slaving away trying to get the new stuff working on 
my IIci. Most of the things that have been posted are also things I have 
been seeing. I get one additional thing when starting up in multiuser 
mode though, when starts to check the file system, I then get two 
messages that start "anic: <number>" I don't have the number right now 
since I'm at work and the Mac and my erros message sheet are at home. It 
hangs after these messages. 

   However, I have gotten it to boot into multiuser mode and I have not 
had the hang problem related to the ADB. How did I achieve this wonderous 
thing? I removed the 1.0 kernel and re-installed the 0.9C kernel 
(netbsd-073194.gz). After some editing to files to make it so I could 
login, the machine has run really well. I still have some more work to 
do; but root is set up, I added a user, changed the time zone info to my 
time zone and made some other minor changes. 

   I'm sure some of you are cringing; but I wanted to get _something_ to 
work. Now I will try to get the 1.0 kernel working. Also, if you do go 
back to the .9C, and you haven't tried it before, don't be surprised if 
it doesn't like your Nubus video card (it didn't like mine). It will 
however work with the internal video port. Anyway, that is what I have 
done so far. If anyone figures out a good way to get 1.0 to run well, 
post it so I can try it. :)
