I'm a slave to -current and it crashes every now and then.

I have two partitions, a single / for NetBSD, and /win for windows.  The
fsck does take a while, and so I've occasionally considered using LFS
instead of FFS.  LFS cannot be the boot partition on i386 yet, but
on a set up with more than one partition, you should be able to use LFS.
