I've just gotten BSD up and running on my IIvx. I used the iivx kernel from
the puma archive.

IIvx 12MB RAM 1MB VRAM, BSD installed on external 270 MB SyQuest. Using
internal video. Don't forget to turn off serial console.

By the way, does it matter which screen size I use? I was thinking about
using a 12" instead of my 14".

Only problem is I have a danish keyboard and BSD maps it to a US so I need
to have a keycaps-printout of the US keyboard layout :-)
