I have a Mac IIsi with FPU and accelerated to 25 MHz (quick for a si !). 
nigth I tried to install NetBSD onto the si but ran into a big problem.

Al the software installed just fine onto an external partitioned drive. 
After running
the boot application, I got a few messages on the screen telling me that 
was booting and a few other number which didn't really mean much to me at 

After all that, the screen then changed and a small font was displayed on 
the screen
say something along the lines that "???? bytes were reserved for ????". A 
seconds later lines came from the bottom of the screen to the top and the 
locked up.

Is this a problem because I'm trying to run NetBSD on a si (with FPU) or is 
it a software
instalation problem?

Thanks in advance
