Thats good news - so the 1.2 release should be Falcon friendly. :)
I'm intending to re-organise my netbsd-1.1 system, mainly because
/usr is out of space (99% full) so I'm gonna free up a TOS partition
and convert it to a netbsd ffs and make it /home for all my sensitive

Once I've done that, I can easily back it up and start playing with
1.2 - and I'll be in a position to test kernels if need be. I do need
a stable netbsd platform for day to day stuff - almost everything I
do is under netbsd these days. It's a tight fit in 4Mb ;)

One other question, since I don't have space for all the source files
I can't re-compile kernels. Hence I am wondering if there is a
"bare minimum" kernel in the 1.2 release similar to boot_fpe from the
1.1 release? IIRC the 1.2 beta kernel I tried had 3 vconsoles configured
rather than 2 and I was constantly running out of RAM.
