Has anyone played with U3 flash disks on NetBSD? A U3 flash disk appears
as two devices, a disk and a CD-ROM. The presence of a CD-ROM on Windows
permits auto-run, with all the advantages and disadvantages that
implies... The issue for NetBSD is two-fold. First, given our sometimes
quirky USB support, do the devices show up properly (and if so, which
brand did you use)? Second, and just as important, what does it take to
write the "CD-ROM" device under NetBSD?
