I tried installing NetBSD 1.0 on my Mac (Mac II, Daystar 50MHz'030w/FPU,
caching off, 16MB RAM, disk partitioned as 78MB A/UX 3.0 /root&/usr plus
3MB Mac partition, partition & driver from APS 2.7.3, system booted off
LaCie/Quantum 170 with 7.1, Mode32 on.) I got as far as Mkfs, which replied
(after selecting the Syquest) with something like "get_deviceinfo returned 2",
and no other actions taken.

I've read the MacBSD FAQ and the NetBSD-1.0 FAQ, and neither seem to address
Syquest 105's or 270's. Has anyone out there tried this, or seen this sort
of error from Mkfs?
