Now that I've got the sets on my GEMDOS drive this will be at least one day faster for me to test in the future. (Copying the sets via a Ghostlink serial connection is an overnight process. I probably should search for some kind of TCP/IP stack for TOS that works with the Riebl/ANS to make file xfer faster in that environment.)

        Well, if you have a working NetBSD install on another
        disk/partition you can always perform the set transfer to
        the GEMDOS drive in NetBSD :)

        Would you have a chance to read through the atari INSTALL.html
        or INSTALL.txt and suggest any updates for NetBSD 5.0 (lets
        also assume the gemdos install will be working - that sets
