It looks like the build came up between the time of your message and my getting 
to read it.

So I downloaded it: i386cd.iso and source sets too, onto Linux partition.  Now 
I guess I can update either by update from sysinst or by the method discussed 
in the recent thread on upgrading NetBSD in place.

As for the source code, I see /usr/src/CVS and /usr/xsrc/CVS are geared to 
netbsd-5-1-RELEASE, which is not what I want here.

I suppose I could wipe out /usr/src/* and /usr/xsrc/*, after copying out my 
kernel config files, and then extract the new source sets from directory /.   I 
guess I need to reread the part in the guide about downloading and updating 
source and building the kernel.

I will get to see if I can now read the Linux partition from NetBSD, and also 
the status of the screenblanking bug.
