Fairly easy if you know what you do :-) This really isnt Linux, but
the installation process is improving.

Well, it does work. I never used it yet. As for NetScape, the BSD386
version seemed more appropriate.
> - Where can I get a NetBSD CD-ROM?
It seems that outside Germany my CD-ROM is rather unknown. Only Australia
purchased more than expected yet :-) Therefore a pointer:
This CD-ROM is dedicated to NetBSD-Amiga, therefor interesting for every
m68k-platform, but of course holds the entire NetBSD distribution version
1.1 for all platforms including i386. And the CD's cheaper than BSDisc :-)
FYI: The next Gateway! Volume is on the road, I am waiting for NetBSD 1.2.
And the CD does not give me _any_ money...
