I have a moderate-duty AlphaStation 200 4/233 currently running 1.5.2, and
I'm seriously considering moving up to current.  I'm still new to NetBSD
(and BSD in general), and I haven't installed anything from current before.
The machine in question is currently being used as a moderate load build
server (lots of gcc/gmake use) on an IPv4 ethernet.  Anyone have
success/horror stories or other words of advice that would help me decide
whether or not to take the plunge?
