Check the email list archives for discussions regarding the use of the
new 3.0 restore CD:

I have NetBSD 3.0 running on a RAQ 2. The only problem during
installation was that the RAQ 2 failed to configure the network
correctly via DHCP; so I had to access the system via the serial port
to make the necessary changes.  I don't know if the same will be true
for the Qube 2.
