I have a IIvx and I'm excited to see traffic concerning a relatively 
stable macbsd for the IIvx.  What I can't seem to locate is info on
how to install the IIvx version that I've seen you guys talking about.

I don't know that I'll be that helpful as a developer (having two
kids has destroyed my recreational programming...) but if I get it
running I promise to try to be as helpful as I can.  Any help would
be appreciated.
