I am a newbie who plans to install NetBSD for the first time on an older
(supported) Alpha workstation. I am UNIX-friendly(tm), but have never
worked with NetBSD. I was considering using FFS for most of the
partitions, but LFS for perhaps /etc and /var/log (BTW, is the typical
NetBSD directory layout similar to FSSTND?). In reading the docs for LFS,
I saw some comments about it being mostly complete - which implies to me it
is not fully stable (at least in terms of development).
I appreciate any suggestions or recommendations from you veterans.
