The CT2 accellerator is supported by NetBSD. The only catch being that you
can boot NetBSD only by using 'loadbsd.ttp'. I noticed that the bootblock
loader does not support it (same is true for the BPFX board).
Oh, be sure to use a 'recent' loadbsd.ttp! I cannot remember if CT2 support
was added before or after 1.4. To be on the safe side, use loadbsd.ttp from
the 1.5_ALPHA distribution. It will boot an 1.4.1 kernel without problems.
