Re: NetBSD LiveUSB

Hi friends

Sorry for my reply;

Sometimes I think NetBSD is a love, is simple for me.
And sometimes developers or  users maybe don't have many time to do a
particular task;
it's are not common the  public usb flash images, but maybe in the
list you find a user with recent NetBSD images to share.

Best Regards
