I have created a restore CD from your instructions.

I have found a possible typing error in README around line 182.  It

% patch -d < patch/fdisk.c-r1.114.diff

but I think it maybe should read:

% patch -p < patch/fdisk.c-r1.114.diff

At least, using a -p flag did not produce an error.

I *did* do step 3a - rebuilding paneld etc.

I did *not* do step 4 - rebuild the kernel/bootloader.

Then I burnt the image to a CD, booted a spare workstation from the CD,
and net booted my Qube 2.

The installation completed successfully, the Qube 2 rebooted, and came
up with IP address and the following dmesg (note that there
is a SCSI card in the PCI slot):

For anyone's trivial interest, the build machine was a virtual machine
under VMWare Server, with a fresh installation of NetBSD 4.0.  The
virtual disk was 4G in size.  I did have to install cdrtools (via
pkgsrc) to create the .iso file, but otherwise it is a default full
installation of NetBSD/i386 4.0.  At the end there was 642M of disk
space left, so a 4G disk seems to be about the minimum.

If anyone wants it, I can make the ISO available.  It is about 126M when
compressed with bzip2, but would kill by 512/128K ADSL line if everyone
tried to download it.  So if anyone has a faster connection ... ?
