I wanted to try out -current, but am a bit confused abt where to start. I
tried going thru the document available abt trackng -current, but I get
the impression that they all need one to have CVS access.  My machine
doesn't have Net access -- I just get my hard-disk to my lab once in a
while, and download things.  Is it possible that I can start using
-current then ?  Can I just get some files, compile then, and start
working ?  

[PS: I need to start using -current, because I so desperately want to
start using NetBSD, and it seems one of the currents have 16 partitions
support, which I so badly need.  If it is possible for me to do as said
above, would somebody tell me which of the snapshots have the 16
partitions thing in it ?]

Oh, one more thing: does tracking -current need a lot of programming
experience etc, or just some guts to take risks ... :)
