apt-get for NetBSD? Huh? Are you trying a Debian/NetBSD system?

I'm likely going to replace my home wireless router with the Qube and
a USB wireless network adapter provided that:

1. The PCI USB card will work, I've had problems with that in the past.
2. The USB network adapter is supported, it's supposed to be as of 4.0
3. It will allow the adapter to function as a gateway.
