'twas announced on the list.  If you could point me to the out-of-date
reference you used to find macbsd-general, I will fix it...

You should install netbsd 1.1 (the latest, greatest, and
not-quite-here-yet version).  The official word is that
it will be out in the next week.

You'll need to substitute /dev/ser0 with /dev/tty00.

Nope.  I can't tell you why it's failing.  It could probably stand
some work.  I have a (very basic) start on some code to make an hfs
filesystem that you could use to use 'cd' and 'ls' and 'cp' to access
files on the MacOS partitions.  Read-only, of course, until someone
figures out enough of the "reserved for finder use" fields to make
writing safe.

Take a look at <URL:> for some
updated documentation.  I do need to get around to updating the ftp-able
