It's actually a good question why firefox was not included - esp. as it 
was put in the readme. I've rebuilt the CD (for myself right now), and 
there's firefox on that right now. BUT. It only starts up, and exits 
before opening any windows.

One problem I noticed while installing the firefox binary package was an 
error message from the INSTALL script, see, claiming that it can't run 
/usr/pkg/lib/firefox/regchrome - which indeed isn't there.

Maybe that's related?

I'll look into adding links and lynx for the next update, I'd prefer not 
to go into xfce and any vim stuff - NetBSD has a fine vi. Sudo is already
