Never got far enough with the z50 to find out. I finally threw in the
towel when the NetBSD boot paniced at "unable to start (find?)
/dev/console. Is this a known problem with a workaround? I was
installing by loading pbsdboot and the install kernel on a small dos
partition on the Microdrive, then booting the z50 and dragging down
the installation sets by NFS from my desktop.
