I don't think that's it - the system works fine under both AmigaDos
and 1.0. I'm not even sure it's the network, anymore, either - today the
system froze while using vi in singleuser - it will consistently hang when
I use a 'cw' command.
Tried a clean boot, anyway, though, and there was no difference.
I did manage to ping my sparc earlier, though. Tried a ping -f and it
hung then, although that may have actually been in resolv(), as I didn't
use IP (which I did when it worked). Loopback appears to work reliably.
I'm going to try a reinstall - maybe something important is corrupt.
If that doesn't help, I guess I could try -current, or go back to 1.0.
I'd really like to just figure out what's wrong and start compiling X.
A slightly more specific recap of the system:
8M Static Fast, 2M Chip
WD33C93A rev 8 SCSI
1.4 "bootstrap" ROM
Quantum Lightning 730S
Hewlett Packard SCSI-2 DAT
Retina Z2 2Mb
Any more clues would be appreciated.
BTW, the new sbic driver seems alot faster, even on a drive with half
the cache of the Empire I used under 1.0 (Thanks Michael!).

I just put the Amiga next to the couch. Don't have a bunch of cords in
the way when I roll over to take a nap :^)
