I ftp'd base.tgz to another netbsd box. With the netbsd-3 kernel, it
was .98 meg per second average. With your kernel it was 1.05 meg per
second average. From another box, it was 7.5 megs per second.

Any one in particular? Is ttcp good enough?

Don't know, didn't run it long enough. But it booted and didn't crash,
so that's a start :)

I'll work more on this later.
