edit /etc/ifconfig.tlp0 and add "inet 192.168.1.105 netmask 255.255.255.0"
and add a line to /etc/rc.conf with "defaultroute=192.168.1.1"

No idea about soundcards, sorry.

Bash isn't installed by the CD, so first you have to install another shell
"setenv PKG_PATH ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/packages/1.6/cobalt/All |
pkg_add -v bash" then mod the user and run the shell (saves logging off)
"usermod -s /usr/pkg/bin/bash <username> | /usr/pkg/bin/bash"

We aim to please ! :)
p.s. I got most of my (admittedly limited) knowledge from an excellent guide
written by Andreas Fuchs on this list. Find it here:
