Can you try a newer netbsd-4 kernel ? Support for this revision may have
been pulled up after NetBSD 4.0 was released.

I'll try it, can I ask a really dumb question? (I have another MB tha I just bought, with yet another unsupported chip, an attansic ethernet chip on an ASUS P5GC-MX mb ... but I see it's supported as of around 200708)

What's the easiest way to grab the kernel source for netbsd-4-stable? Is there a CVS tag for it?
