  Yes, those systems which might not be running NetBSD are just broken and
need to be repaired.  I know.  :-)

  If NetBSD is not an absolute requirement, what about
(Linux, 50MB, designed to fit on credit card CD)  It even has X.

  It might at least be useful in some circumstances and an extra tool in
your toolbox.  (or wallet, if you burn it to the appropriate CDR)

  The credit card CDRs might be an option even if you find a better
alternative than LNX-BBC.  Frees up all your 256 MB for other stuff, and
is still very portable.

  We should have something like LNX-BBC..
