That should be no problem, most things still work for netbsd-1-6, except 
for cgd. Maybe you could add a disclaimer at the beginning of the guide 
saying some parts might be 2.0 specific. Things that still need to be done 

* Splitting the networking chapter. It is huge right now and some 
important parts do not show up in the table of contents. I wouldn't mind 
making a proposal for the split up (at least it would be nice to have the 
ipf/ipnat part in a seperate chapter).
* A huge spell/grammar check. There are still some bugs left ;). Besides 
that it might be a good idea to look at consistency of terminology in the 
* Some commands are not tagged with the command tag and some filenames not 
with the filename tag. Besides that it might be a good idea to add the 
manpage number at serveral pages (e.g. stf(4)), some chapters do this 
extensively, others don't.

With kind regards,
