I didn't think this was available for NetBSD yet. But this is a generic
option, if it works for one port, it works for all. I'm no networking
expert. Maybe you should ask this on a more generic list.

I thought there was some talk about this on the mac68k list a while
back (the most natural source in this case ;-) ). *If* they have it,
using it for the atari-port should be trivial.

I have the feeling that someone has to write a DSP driver first for this
to work. I while back there was a discussion about this. It should be
in the mailing-list archives.

I don't know GIMP. *If* you have the sources and *if* it runs under X11,
getting this to run would be mostly a compile job.
