Ah, well that explains it. :) I didn't recognise the kernel code as being
the sys directory - I was looking for a kernels directory. :)

I downloaded the current source (7.5Mb - eek!) but don't have enough room on
my /usr partition to even gunzip it! :(

That sounds like my best choice at the moment. :) I'm planning to eventually
repartition my HD to give NetBSD more space, at the moment I have 20Mb root,
80Mb /usr and 10Mb swap! Not ideal sizes I'm sure.

I'll pick that up once I have the new kernels. :)
Thanks for the help!
