I couldn't get NetBSD/i386 1.5 to work on my machine at the
office (apparently it hates the network card enough not to
boot). I'll have to try one of the machines at home, perhaps
I'll have more success there.
I've started accumulating bits for a new BSD or unix machine
already, but I'll probably have to try it on one of our
existing machines first, and sadly that means using an ATA
drive. Does NetBSD have to boot from a partition that lays
within the legendarily stupid 1024 cylinder boundry? Will
this depend on my firmware?
